Cybersecurity may have always been a major risk managed on priority by IT majors, but growing opportunities in the space lately have led companies to sit up and take notice. Leading IT companies such as Infosys, TCS, Wipro and HCL Technologies have begun investing significantly in cybersecurity segment.
In an interaction with Moneycontrol, Vishal Salvi, Chief Information Security Officer, Infosys said: “There is so much happening in this space that it is as much as a risk as a business opportunity.”
Until recently, cybersecurity grew organically as a part of infrastructure services for the company. However, it has now been developed into a separate vertical thanks to growing market opportunities.
“In the last 4-5 quarters, the company has been growing it as a separate vertical. It will be a key focus area going forward. It is very important and a focus area for everyone at the leadership board and for us to drive cybersecurity. This is not just because of the business opportunity but also because of potential value that we can add to our customers,” he added.
