The article focuses on "Banking and Insurance 2010: IT Security Budgets and Spending," a research paper by Ellen Carney, Forrester senior analyst. The paper discusses the strategy of inspired frugality, a condition where insurers have opted to defer security projects or upgrades over the past 18 months. Carney predicts that the strategy will not last longer. She also argues why banks have more security issues than insurers.
