ASTANA -- The Kazakh government plans to launch a new cyber-security academy to train specialists, Kazinform reported.
Vice Minister of Defence and Aerospace Industry Timur Shaimergenov announced the plans for the academy, which is part of the country's 'Cyber Shield', Wednesday (December 5) while speaking to parliament.
"Currently, we are studying organisational and legal issues in order to open the academy," Shaimergenov said, adding that "strong companies ... will be attracted to the academy's development".
