In a video interview with Information Security Media Group as part of ISMG’s RSA Conference 2021 coverage, Aggio discusses:

  • Why a “Human Operating System” upgrade is required to use the internet safely, and how to do it;
  • How he uses this technique at the World Health Organization;
  • Technologies and priorities to support the “work from anywhere” model.

He has more than 30 years of experience in specialized chemical manufacturing, semiconductor, consumer product, government and international industries.
