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”.

Satellite firm Viasat probes suspected cyberattack in Ukraine

(Reuters) — U.S.-listed satellite communications company Viasat Inc. said Monday it was investigating a suspected cyberattack that caused a partial outage in its residential broadband services in Ukraine and other European countries.

Viasat said a third-party cybersecurity company was looking into the causes of an outage in recent days across its KA-SAT network, which provides high-speed satellite internet coverage in Europe and Mediterranean markets.

The outage could have been due to a distributed denial of service attack, Sky News reported Monday. Such attacks hit a number of Ukrainian banks and government websites shortly before Russia's invasion last week.

“Our investigation into the outage continues, but so far we believe it was caused by a cyber event,” the company said in a statement, adding that there was “no indication” that customer data was involved.

President Vladimir Putin's government accuses Western nations of making up accusations of cyber warfare in order to blacken Russia's name.
