Living in the 21 century, every day the world is moving ahead in terms of technology and innovation, with innovations and solutions to tackle the problems we face emerging each day from across the globe.
In the latest episode of the African Experts Podcast, “Internet of Things (IoT) & Data Protection”, host Vickie Remoe is in conversation with Tamba Lamin, an experienced and versatile ICT expert from Sierra Leone who resides in the USA.
Remoe and Lamin discuss the Internet of Things or IoT and its benefits. They also talked about issues around access to the internet, data protection in light of recent events on the continent, as Governments in Senegal, Uganda and Congo were in the news most recently when they shut down citizen access to the internet to limit connectivity.
They further discussed how parliamentarians in Sierra Leone were about to introduce a cybercrime law that will give the police and the government unlimited access to personal data on computers and mobile phones and other mobile devices.
Lamin has over the past two decades deployed solutions as a Management Consultant, Technology Architect, Systems Engineer, Manager, and Developer for United States Federal Government Agencies, New York State Office of Information Technology, New York City Department of Education, IBM, Pfizer, Johnson and Johnson, Novartis, Autodesk, Google, and Facebook.
He is currently a Technology Architect and Digital Experience Platforms Practice Lead at Accenture where he leads a global team of 1,500 employees as they design, and develop interactive web, mobile, and IoT applications for a portfolio of $10 Million in annual revenue.
