CAUSEWAY DELAYS NOT A RESULT OF CYBER ATTACK, BUT A TECHNICAL GLITCH, SAYS ICA

The ICA had clarified that the slowness of the immigration clearance system at the Woodlands and Tuas checkpoints that caused hundreds of motorists to be stranded in the two causeways, was a result of a technical glitch, and not an act of cyber attack.

This was good to hear, as that means the worldwide cyber attack had not preyed on Singapore's government computer systems, or that the computer systems in Singapore's government organisations are covered well against such attacks. However, this brings the question on why the technical glitch had to happen on the very day people worldwide were worried that the cyber attacks might cripple the running of day-to-day activities. This can be quite serious, as ICA's technical glitch happened at the causeways, essentially Singapore's first point of fight against outside terrorism.
