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”.
The Texas Department of Insurance said the data breach it announced in March was the result of a coding error.
“In January 2022, TDI found the issue was due to a programming code error that allowed internet access to a protected area of the application,” the agency said in a statement. “TDI promptly disconnected the web application from the internet. After correcting the programming code, TDI placed the web application back online.”
The department said its forensic investigation could not conclusively determine whether the information was accessed by unauthorized users or that it was misused.
In March, the department said it was sending letters to anyone who had a new comp claim filed between March 2019 and January 2022 who might have been affected. TDI also said those who did not get a letter but had a work comp claim since 2006 may still qualify for free credit monitoring.
