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”.

U.K. lawmakers start inquiry into TalkTalk hack

Reprints

(Reuters) — British lawmakers will hold an inquiry into the circumstances surrounding a cyber attack on telecom firm TalkTalk, which was initially thought to have put the private details of over 4 million customers at risk.

The Culture, Media and Sport Committee said on Wednesday that they were concerned about how companies store and secure customer information online and wanted to investigate the robustness of measures put in place by telecoms and internet companies.

British police on Tuesday made a fourth arrest in connection with the attack on TalkTalk in October, which the company said had leaked the bank details of more than 20,000 customers, fewer than first thought.

The committee said in a statement it expected to hear evidence later this month.
