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”.

Mexico central bank issues alert after Axa cyber attack

Mexico central bank issues alert after Axa cyber attack

(Reuters) — Mexico’s central bank said on Tuesday it had raised the security alert level in its payment system after a nonbanking financial user reported “inconsistencies” in the cash payment matching system.

Insurer Axa SA said in a separate statement it suffered a cyber attack Monday that prompted the central bank alert, but that its clients’ information and resources were safe and had not been affected.

Some institutions would be operating via an alternative mechanism until further notice as a precautionary measure, the central bank said in a statement, without providing details.
