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”.

Study details cyber stress on US property market


The U.S. small business property market is exposed to $9.5 billion of attritional losses and $3 billion of catastrophe losses under a one-in 100-year loss scenario, which could have a significant impact on the insurance industry, says a report issued Tuesday.

The study was conducted by San Francisco-based CyberCube Inc., a cyber risk analytics company, Aon PLC and A.M. Best Co.

“In the context of natural catastrophe perils with physical damage components, this presents a small loss event,” the study says.

“However, considering that these exposures are often unpriced or unaccounted for in (enterprise risk management), the impact on carriers can be significant,” the study says.

The study said according to a stress test on the U.S. property market conducted by A.M. Best, 18 insurers would suffer a downgrade to the capital adequacy ratio assessment as a result of the modeled cyber losses.
