“With our recent announcement about data management changes in the US, it’s time for me to transition from my role as Global Chief Security Officer into a strategic advisory role focusing on the business impact of security and trust programs, working directly with (CEO) Shou , (ByteDance VP of Technology) Dingkun and other senior leaders,” Cloutier wrote in the memo.

TikTok, the video-sharing app owned by China’s ByteDance, hired Cloutier from payroll processing company ADP in 2020, amid increasing scrutiny from US regulators on the company’s handling of personal data.
