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”.

Specialist insurer offering cyber-related business interruption, crime cover

Reprints

CFC Underwriting Ltd., a London-based specialist insurance provider, said Tuesday it is introducing cyber-related business interruption coverage as well as expanded coverage for a variety of cybercrime activities.

CFC said in its statement that under the updated policy, coverage is triggered by information technology system failure as well as malicious cyber events.

It also provides full supply chain business interruption coverage that extends to events that affect the insured’s systems, and the systems of their technology and, where named, nontechnology suppliers.

CFC is also adding crime coverages for cryptojacking, where hackers hijack the victim’s computer network’s processing power to mine cryptocurrency for their own benefit, leaving the victim to pay for the increased bandwidth use. The new cyber policy adds coverage for hardware replacement as well, the statement said.

A spokesman could not immediately be reached for comment on the coverages’ limits.
