As information technologies are embedding in increasing number of spheres of life of states and societies, dependence on the use of them transforms in new vulnerabilities and security concerns for entire states. The article is devoted to the analysis of the modern state of information security in the Republic of Kazakhstan. This article reviews the law, standards, technologies and incidents in the field of information security. Some statistics of information security events, threats and incidents are considered. The measures to provide information security in Kazakhstan including the basic norms of information security of information systems, resources and networks are described. The importance of timely elimination of vulnerabilities, exclusion and prevention of information security threats and incidents is highlighted. In conclusion the authors emphasizes that effective ways to solve the existing problems of low security clearance is full implementation of the specific recommendations are made to improve the information security of the country.
