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”.

AmWINS, Axis partner on fraud cover, risk mitigation services

Wholesale brokerage AmWINS Group Inc. on Thursday said it had partnered with Axis Insurance Co., a unit of Axis Capital Holdings Ltd., to offer social engineering fraud coverage and risk mitigation services.

Charlotte, North Carolina-based AmWINS said in a statement the policy will cover social engineering losses including when insureds are fraudulently persuaded to transfer money or securities following a telephone, written or electronic instruction from a supposed client, vendor or employee.

Limits from $100,000 to $10 million are available under the policy, which is offered in 47 states and Washington, D.C., the statement said. AmWINS said it can also secure additional capacity for higher limits from other insurers.

The policy also provides free training about social engineering for employees through KnowBe4 Inc., a security awareness training company.

Pembroke, Bermuda-based Axis, the exclusive partner on the policy, also offers social engineering coverage on an excess basis.
