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”.

What would you change: "I see it happening a little already as a result of Sarbanes-Oxley and enterprise risk management. A lot better results are obtained when company executives don't restrict themselves to rigid silos of operation. One of the neat things about SOX compliance is that companies are encouraging that kind of thinking outside of their operating units to address overarching problems that, at the end of the day, can save the company millions."
