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”.

ENISA group to advise E.C. with security matters


CRETE, Greece--The European Network and Information Security Agency, the Crete-based European Union agency set up to deal with community-wide information security issues, has announced the formation of the Working Group on Regulatory Aspects of Network and Information Security.

The new group will initially deliver an inventory of E.U. regulations on network and information security, and an overview of existing principles to help ENISA work out what is needed next.

The ENISA executive is today attending a conference on strategies for 2006-2010 in Helsinki, Finland. During the event, ENISA's management board will be conducting its second regular meeting of 2006 and work out its plan and draft budget for 2007. As currently constituted, ENISA has four core tasks. These are to:

  • advise and assist the European Commission and member states on information security and, in their dialogue with industry, to address security-related problems in hardware and software products;
  • collect and analyze data on security incidents in Europe and emerging risks;
  • investigate risk assessment and risk management methods to enhance its capability to deal with information security threats;
  • to raise awareness and co-operation between participants in the information security field, notably by developing public/private partnerships with industry.

    The agency is also holding a risk management and assessment workshop in Rome on October 12.

    The event will cover the work of ENISA's risk management working group and focus on user needs. Participation is free, but there are only 40 spaces and will be distributed on a "first come first served" basis. Contact
