Woburn, MA – March 17, 2023 — Kaspersky today shares the launch of its new podcast series, Insight Story, that shares tech trends to empower business leaders with the insights they need to make decisions about emerging tech investment in their business. The audio series will premiere on March 22.

Digital transformation is not a new concept, and a recent survey by Boston Consulting Group supports this with reports stating the majority of companies plan to keep pushing their investment in digital transformation. About 60% of companies plan to increase investments in digital transformation in 2023 to develop new business models and achieve greater sustainability. To make the right choices among disruptive technologies, businesses need to acquire knowledge about navigating emerging tech trends.

In each episode of Insight Story, listeners will hear from experts from around the world, including Accenture and BASF, who will share insight together with real-world experience from using the technology to help leaders make the right choices about tech trends. Technologies featured include the metaverse, blockchain, AI, smart energy, digital trust and extended reality.

Each episode is accompanied by a session with Fabio Assolini, the Head of Latin America Unit, Global Research & Analysis Team (GReAT), who provides podcast topic-tailored advice on keeping enterprises secure from cyberthreats.

The series will be hosted by Susi O’Neill, Editor-in-Chief for Secure Futures, Kaspersky’s digital magazine for business leaders. She is joined by Doll-E, the show’s ‘virtual assistant’ that will introduce listeners who may have limited prior knowledge of the technology.

Insight Story launches on all major podcast channels, including Apple, Spotify, Google Podcasts and others. The full list of channels can be checked here.

Articles from the series will be available on Secure Futures magazines.
