Governor Kristi Noem of South Dakota, signed Executive Order 2022-10 banning the social media platform TikTok for contractors, employees, and state agencies using state devices.
The Order is in response to the national security threat of TikTok with regard to personal data gathering operations potentially exploited by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
Gov. Noem stated,“Because of our serious duty to protect the private data of South Dakota citizens, we must take this action immediately. I hope other states will follow South Dakota’s lead, and Congress should take broader action, as well”.
