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”.

Major Malta bank suspends operations after cyberattack alert

Bank of Valletta

(Reuters) — Bank of Valletta, which accounts for almost half of Malta's banking transactions, shut down all of its operations on Wednesday after detecting a cyberattack, the company said.

The bank said it had closed its branches and ATMs on the small Mediterranean island after realizing hackers were trying to access its systems. Its website was also offline.

The bank reassured customers that their accounts and funds were "in no way impacted or compromised" and that it was working to resume normal services as soon as possible.

"The bank is working closely with local and international police authorities in this regard," it said in a statement.
