For those leading in business, tech is fast-moving and sometimes confusing. Insight Story, a new audio series from Kaspersky, explains tech trends to empower business leaders with the insights they need to make the right decisions about emerging tech investment in their business. The audio series premiered on March 22.

Digital transformation has been with us for quite a while already, but according to a recent survey by Boston Consulting Group 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.

Technologies featured include the metaverse, blockchain, AI, smart energy, digital trust and extended reality.


Each of the series 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 host is 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’, who introduces listeners who may have limited prior knowledge of the technology.
