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”.

Aon buys Canadian cybersecurity firm


Aon PLC on Tuesday said it has acquired Canada-based cybersecurity firm Cytelligence Inc., adding incident response and digital forensics services to its cyber portfolio.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Founded in June 2016, Cytelligence has offices in Toronto, Ottawa, New York, San Francisco and Miami, and has expertise in cyber incident response, ransomware mitigation and cyber security training for employees, Aon said in a statement.

Daniel Tobok, CEO of Cytelligence, will join Aon as the Canadian president, Aon’s cyber solutions, based in Toronto, a spokesman said.

Cytelligence employs around 50 staff, according to its LinkedIn profile.

The acquisition will help Aon expand its existing cyber coverages, adding to its portfolio, which combines digital risk management services, security services, professional risk solutions and a global risk consulting practice, Aon said.

It follows Aon’s 2016 acquisition of U.S.-based cyber security consultant Stroz Friedberg LLC.

“As the number of network intrusions, data breaches, ransomware attacks and similar threats continues to increase in both frequency and severity, expertise in cyber incident response becomes critical to organizations and insurance companies,” J. Hogg, CEO of Aon’s Cyber Solutions, said in the statement.
