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”.

This was followed by digital business interruption, identified by 54% as their top concern, information technology resilience, 53%, contingent business interruption, 52%, directors and officers liability, technology errors and omissions and intellectual property risk, each cited by 47%, and pandemic risk, 44%.

A total of 71% cited data security and privacy as the risk most expected to grow in complexity, followed by digital business interruption, 54%, information technology resilience, 50%, and pandemic risk, 42%.

COVID-19 has not had major financial impact on most tech companies, with 33% stating it has caused a near-term decrease in revenues or slowing in growth, and just 4% considering it an existential threat to their business.
