SINGAPORE, May 15 (Xinhua) -- Critical services in healthcare, transport, telecommunications, finance and retail in Singapore were not affected by the global ransomware attacks, said the Cyber Security Agency (CSA) of Singapore on Monday.
Dan Yock Hau, director of Singapore's National Cyber Incident Response Centre under CSA said the unit will continue to track the situation closely to monitor Singapore's critical information infrastructure.
"We are also tracking other sources of intelligence and have reached out to offer assistance to those that were brought to our attention," Dan said.
He also added that CSA's National Cyber Security Monitoring Centre is monitoring the developing global situation to track the technical indicators to assess the potential implication to Singapore.
In a separate statement, CSA said it has worked with internet service providers Singtel and StarHub to provide further information on the WannaCry ransomware to businesses and members of the public.
CSA's chief executive David Koh noted that, "This is an issue of national importance and we will take all the necessary measures to counter the spread of the ransomware and help businesses and members of the public prevent or recover from it as quickly as possible."
The WannaCry ransomware has affected over 150 countries by targeting vulnerabilities in old Microsoft operating systems since May 12.
