Organizations are actively developing their business relying on IT infrastructure as the foundation of business processes, but they do not pay enough attention to IT security. In 2019, more than 21 thousand incidents of information security breaches, including state systems, were identified in Kazakhstan. Today, the most valuable asset of any organization is information, and information and communication technologies are at the heart of all business processes.
Insufficient information security can lead to data theft, unauthorized access to company resources and malware infection – all of which can affect the ability of a business to operate and can be fatal to the organization. In these conditions, competently built data protection of a company is one of the key conditions for ensuring its competitiveness and development.
