Department of "Cybersecurity, information processing and storage"


Department of "Computer Science" is now "Information Security" was founded In 1962,. The Department conducted the training of engineers in the majors "Mathematical and computing instruments and devices", which in 1968 was transformed into a majors "Computer Engineering", and in 1990 - in the majors "Computers, complexes, systems and networks . "In 1971, the Department became part of the newly organized Department of Engineering Cybernetics, and since 1975 under its former name restored. The department was the basis for the formation in 1980 of the Faculty of Electronic Computers (EVT).

The first head of the department (1962-68 years) was a famous educator and honored inventor of the Kazakh SSR, associate professor L.A.Brichkin.

From 1968 to 1971 he headed the Department Associate Professor L.A. Vinokurov graduate of the Kharkov Higher Military Aviation Engineering School of the radio department, specialty engineer on radio BBC.

In the period 1975-1988 years department was headed by Candidate of Technical Degree, Associate Professor S.T.Tynymbaev one of the first graduates of the Faculty of Automation and Computer Science in "Mathematical computing devices and equipment" of the Kazakh Polytechnic Institute named after V.I. Lenin.

There is a development of the department in basic areas of computer and information technology-related hardware and software problems in the automation of scientific research and industrial applications. Customers of works are such organizations as: NIITSEVT ("Perseus", Moscow); Institute of Nuclear Physics (Academy of Sciences of the Kazakh SSR); BUT "Soyuzvuzpribor" (Moscow); Karaganda Metallurgical Plant (Karaganda).

On the basis of the department was held a visiting session of the Scientific-methodical commission of the USSR Ministry of Higher Education, a member of which was Tynymbaev S.T.

Department of Computer Science has been a training center for computer experts for all of Central Asia and Southern Siberia, had the largest number of students in the USSR.

In this period the equipping department of computer technology and laboratory equipment. There is constant training of highly qualified personnel for the department and is formed by highly qualified teaching staff. Currently Tynymbaev S.T. a professor of the Department of Information Security.

In 1979, an associate professor in the department was adopted candidate of technical sciences J.S.Sarypbekov, after receiving the degree of Doctor of Technical Degree, he became a professor in 1983 as dean of the faculty led EVT. On his initiative, in 1993, and with the support of the vice-rector Asaubaev K.S. opened a new majors for Kazakhstan - "Protection and Security Information" (ZBI). In 1989 he opened the Kazakh groups of the majors "Computer Engineering", and in 1996 - in "Safety and security of information".

Later Department conducted training in the following majors: "Organization and Information Security Technology" and "Computers and Software" (directions "Protection and safety information" and "Computer systems and networks").

In the 1988-2011 years, the Department of "Computer Science" headed candidate of technical degree, professor A.S. Ermakov, 1969 graduate of the Kazakh Polytechnic Institute Electronic computers.

During this period, opening up new specialty, staff of the Department developed the state compulsory education standards in the field of 37.06- "Protection and safety information" 5V070400- "Computers and Software" and 5V100200 - "Information Security".

2001-2002 years, the department headed Doctor of Technical Degree, Professor Kaziev G.Z. who is graduate of the Kazakh Polytechnic Institute majoring in "Electronic Engineering".

2011-2014 The department was headed by Doctor of Pedagogical Degree, Professor G.D. Zhangisina.

From September 2014 was appointed Head of the Department, candidate of technical degree, associate professor N.A.Seilova.
