New Webinar: Executive Order on Foreign-Controlled Apps

Matthew R. A. Heiman

In June, President Biden issued a new executive order directing the federal government to review the security threats posed by foreign-controlled software applications. On September 2, Matthew Feeney (Cato Institute) moderated an insightful discussion on the topic featuring Jennifer Hay (DataRobot), Jamil Jaffer (National Security Institute), and Margaret Peterlin (Texas A&M University). They broke down the executive order and its implications for the apps it targets as well as for future relations between the United States and its foreign adversaries, such as China.
