Years ago, when I was supporting Firewalls, one of the minor govt agencies engaged our product for some solutions.
They had it so tight, when one of the Hard disk failed, they refused to return the failed HDD even though we needed it for RMA and investigation ..
And for another product, when one of the rules couldn't be supported, the Agency simply paid the vendor the full amount and just junked the stuff in the corner, than 'accomodate' the change, which would have not complied with requirements ...
And that was a very minor minor agency .. and that was more than 9 years ago ..
I am sure they have tightened up stuff much more in the 9 years since ...
to those who believe that on 5th November SG Govt domains was downed .. personally I don't think so ..
If they were quick to admit part of PMO's website being hacked, .. why hide the larger story then ? just sayin ,..
