SINGAPORE India's fourth-largest software services exporter, HCL Technologies, is beating an industry lull as it looks to cybersecurity for revenue growth. In a recent interview, Swapan Johri, a corporate vice president and the head of the company's Asia-Pacific business, spoke about HCL's growth strategies.

According to reports, HCL will double its cybersecurity investments. Could you give us details? Also in what other areas do you plan to invest? We are looking at some more contemporary services now, things that are very relevant to what is happening in the world today, and cybersecurity underpins a lot of things. We have created a full line of businesses now [and] we are looking especially in two areas -- the first is people and the second is cybersecurity fusion centers.
