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”.

T-Mobile data breach exposes about 37 million accounts


(Reuters) — Wireless carrier T-Mobile said Thursday it was investigating a data breach that may have exposed 37 million postpaid and prepaid accounts.

It's the second major cyberattack against T-Mobile in less than two years and comes months after the carrier agreed to upgrade its data security to settle litigation related to a 2021 incident that compromised information of an estimated 76.6 million people.

The company identified malicious activity on Jan. 5 and contained it within a day, it said, adding no sensitive data such as financial information was exposed.

T-Mobile, however, added that basic customer data — such as name, billing address, email and phone number — was breached and that it had begun notifying impacted customers. The company has more than 110 million subscribers.

A spokesperson for the Federal Communications Commission said the regulator had opened an investigation into the incident.

T-Mobile declined to comment on the investigation.
