BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

(Reuters) — Samples of financial data that appear to come from customers of Britain's TalkTalk has been spotted for sale in cyber criminal forums on the dark Web, a security researcher for U.S. cyber defense firm FireEye Inc. said Friday.

"Our field intelligence operation has found what appears to be a direct dump of various database information from TalkTalk," Jens Monrad, a Copenhagen-based security researcher with FireEye, told Reuters in an interview.

TalkTalk, a broadband supplier of phone and television services, said it was hit by a "significant and sustained" cyber attack on its website that could involve the theft of private data from all of its more than 4 million customers.
