88 | TikTok: A Path for Election Interference and Open Source Intelligence?

Episode Summary

This episode features Berit Anderson, COO of Future in Review and Strategic News Service, and Evan Anderson, CEO of INVNT/IP. Both Berit and Evan are geopolitical analysts, tech thought leaders, and media executives. We discuss the issue of whether TikTok will be banned in the U.S. and examine the data that could be collected, how it can be a rich source for open intelligence, and how it could be used for election interference. Strategic News Service coined the term CRINK — China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea, and Berit and Evan discuss the geopolitical aspects of TikTok (including CRINK) and how it could be a threat to national security and cybersecurity.
