Astana, Kazakhstan, Sept. 12
By Daniyar Mukhtarov - Trend:
Kazakhstan plans to impose administrative liability for offenses in the field of information and communication technologies, Deputy Minister for Investment and Development Askar Zhumagaliyev said Sept. 12.
He was presenting a new draft law "On Informatization" in the Majilis (a lower chamber of the parliament).
"The current law "On Informatization" served its purpose," he said. "But the new one is designed to realize the positive trends in the world practice."
"It is proposed to amend the six codes and 19 laws," he said. "In particular, the off-budget stimulating measures of IT-companies were worked out. They will help support domestic producers. An administrative liability is imposed for offences in the field of ICT."
"Moreover, a service model of informatization of state agencies, including IT-outsourcing and cloud computing is being fixed," he said. "A legal framework of 'electronic government' architecture was created."
