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”.

Australian regulator, government team up over data sharing after Optus breach


(Reuters) — Australian prudential regulator said on Thursday it will collaborate with the government and other regulatory bodies for “controlled process” of data sharing between its regulated entities and Singapore Telecommunications’ unit Optus.

The move comes weeks after Optus, the country’s second-largest mobile operator, faced a massive cyberattack that compromised data of up to 10 million customers.

The cyberattack, which was followed by a data breach in the country’s largest telecoms firm Telstra Corp. Ltd. earlier this week, served as a wake-up call for regulators and lawmakers to beef up cyber defenses.

Earlier in the day, Australia proposed an overhaul of consumer privacy rules, including changes that will allow telcos to share government-issued identification documents with banks.

The changes will allow telcos to implement enhanced monitoring for customers affected by data breach, in addition to fraud detection in the broader financial services sector.
