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”.

RIMS teaming up to create credential for certification


The Risk Management Society and the Association for Federal Enterprise Risk Management are creating a credential for the RIMS-Certified Risk Management Professional certification, RIMS said in a statement Monday.

The organizations are working on a pilot exam they expect to complete in fall 2018.

Online testing will begin in 2019 for the new credential (RIMS-CRMP-FED), which is being developed in response to the Office of Management and Budget Circular A-123, urging federal agencies to implement enterprise risk management to enhance decisionmaking, the RIMS statement said.

“Our relationship with AFERM and the creation of the RIMS-CRMP-FED will provide public sector risk professionals in the U.S. with a credential that spotlights their risk management expertise,” RIMS CEO Mary Roth said in the statement.

“The RIMS-CRMP-FED will instill confidence in government leaders, encouraging them to take the next steps and fully realize the value of a mature ERM program,” AFERM President Peggy Sherry said in the statement.
