WASHINGTON: The US Commerce Department on Tuesday said it has submitted an initial set of recommendations on data security under an executive order signed by President Joe Biden.

In June, Biden withdrew a series of Trump-era executive orders that sought to ban new downloads of WeChat and TikTok, and ordered a Commerce Department review of security concerns posed by those apps.

The order directed Commerce to make recommendations by Oct 7 to protect US data acquired or accessible by companies controlled by foreign adversaries.
