Lack of details from COI on the SingHealth cyber attack.

The long awaited report on the SingHealth cyber-attack was released today. The full report went to some big shot and a brief report was submitted to the public.

The committee of inquiry spent five months on public hearings.

I was interested to learn what caused the cyber attack.

I was disappointed that the public version of the report did not give any answer. It only said, "as the attack is state sponsored, the whole matter is high security. Details cannot be released".

I do not understand why details could not be released. There are code words to hide the identity of the "state sponsor" such as "state sponsor #1" etc.

I think there is an attempt to hide the facts from the public. Maybe, the flaw in the system is so glaring that it would be a major embarrassment, if the facts are known to the public.

Anyway, if we keep hiding the truth, we can never learn from our mistakes.
