Session Description:

At the beginning of this year, the government issued OMB Memorandum M–23–13 banning TikTok on Government Devices.  More recently, DOD, GSA, and NASA issued an interim rule amending the FAR to prohibit ByteDance Covered Application on any information technology owned or managed by the Government or on any information technology used or provided by the contractor under a contract as FAR 52.204-27.  Citing the prohibition on having or using a covered application on information technology, including certain equipment used by Federal contractors, is a national security measure to protect Government information and information and communication technology systems. This webinar provides essential information about the implications of the various federal and state requirements banning Tik Tok and ByteDance Apps for research administrators.  

Speakers for this webinar include William Ferreira, Partner, Hogan Lovells; Mary Ann Blair, Associate Vice President, Chief Information Security Officer, Carnegie Mellon University; Jennifer Rodis, Policy & Planning Analyst, Research and Sponsored Programs, University of Wisconsin-Madison; and Vivian Holmes, Executive Director, Research Administration Services, Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
