One of the major aspects of the Message of the President is support of small and medium businesses and we, as the Ministry, do everything to optimize the processes for newcomers into business. We perform the similar integration with other banks and organizations. There is no monopoly for digitalization, though there is the goal which involves doing everything to make users get services seamlessly. The government should be invisible in the processes” highlighted Bagdat Mussin, Minister of Digital Development.

Moreover, straight after establishing an IE, entrepreneurs can open a bank account, issue a corporate card and remotely manage the accounts and cards via    Onlinebank mobile app for business. 

“All our developments are launched based on the feedback from customers, while a flexible system of technological processes enables adapting and enhancing them. We understand that the business needs support, that is why the service to register an IE is a timely and needed service for our customers, which is fully remote” told Umut Shayakhmetova, Chairman of the Board, Halyk Bank. “I want to add that our Onlinebank app for business has a variety of useful and convenient services for organization, management and development of business.

Registration of IE via Halyk Bank app became available due to development of additional services to check availability of IE, to generate notifications on the commencement of activities as IE and coupon. To do this, specialists from National Information Technologies JSC performed integration with the information systems of State Revenue Committee under Ministry of Finance, e-Licensing State Database and the bank.     

The service is available both from web-version and Onlinebank mobile app for business. The app is available for download in Play Market and App Store.

Bagdat Mussin made a report on RK Government session

1 year 8 months ago

On December 2, the Government session took place on the issues of agroindustrial complex and land relations digitization with participation of the Minister of Digital Development, Innovations and Aerospace Industry of RK Bagdat Mussin. During the session, the Minister made a report on implementation of current projects and shared the Ministry`s plans in the field of agroindustrial complex and land relations.    

Mussin highlighted that in order to effectively implement the digitization projects, a relevant infrastructure for agrobusiness is required. To implement the tasks, it was suggested to deliver the project on infrastructure provision for agroindustrial complex digitization for 2021-2025 with investment volume of KZT 50 bln under public/private partnership.

Besides, the Minister mentioned three major problems of land procedures.

“First, it is duration and complexity of the procedures. There are no clear and arranged mechanisms for interaction between citizens and agencies. Secondly, there are a lot of judicial disputes and complaints because of overlapping in land plot borders. Thirdly, architecture of the land cadastre system is obsolete. There are over 200 distributed databases to the level of regions, which entails information security and human factor risks” told Bagdat Mussin.

The Head of the Ministry suggested to consolidate all the registers and automate the service delivery process via Single State Cadastre and e-Gov Portal, and also create the Single Register of Electronic Queue.  

The Minister informed that capability to get land plots online was launched in pilot mode in Aktobe.

“We launched the service for provision of land plots with technical characteristics thereto online in pilot mode in Aktobe and significantly changed the process. Using the public cadastre map one can select a land plot online. An Akim`s decision, various contract acts, all of these will be drawn up online and be available in personal account” told B. Mussin.

Increase in cases of illegal use of digital signatures by third parties

1 year 8 months ago

Ministry of Digital Development, Innovations and Aerospace Industry (MDDIAI) informs on the increasing cases of digital signature use by third parties. 

Thus, for the period from 2015-2018, 15 administrative violations were registered (Article 640 of the Administrative Offences Code of RK), in 2019 there were 52 cases.

For 9 months of this year, over 30 facts of illegal transfer of digital signature and over 5 cases of non-observance of protection measures have been detected. Fines in the amount from 10 to 150 MCI were imposed for the detected facts.      

“Recently, the Ministry has been obtaining numerous materials and complaints on the facts of illegal transfer of digital signatures owned by individuals and public officials. It is worth remembering that digital signature is equal to a handwritten signature and bears the same legal consequences” commented Ruslan Abdikalikov, Chairman of Information Security Committee under MDDIAI RK.   

Compared to the previous period, there has been an increase in cases when the heads of government agencies and organizations have transferred their digital signatures to other employees, as well as cases when employers do not revoke digital signatures of dismissed employees. Such actions contribute to the illegal use of digital signatures, which entails administrative and even criminal liability.

To protect oneself and not become a victim of fraud or, vice versa, a violator, the Ministry recommends:

Firstly, exclude transfer of digital signature to third parties. In organizations, employees authorized to sign documents have their own digital signatures.

Secondly, track dismissal of employees having digital signatures and timely revoke those digital signatures. 

Thirdly, in case of loss, re-issue a digital signature as soon as possible, revoke a previous one, and also change a password from a standard one to a more complex.

Requirements for protection of domain names defined

1 year 8 months ago

Ministry of Digital Development, Innovations and Aerospace Industry of the Republic of Kazakhstan defined requirements for protection of domain names within the space of Kazakhstani Internet segment. Now, websites with such registered domain names as .KZ and .ҚАЗ are allocated in the space of Kazakhstani Internet segment, i.e. in hardware and software facilities located on the territory of the Republic of Kazakhstan.         

The requirement was resulted from work performed under tasks set forth by the Head of State within provision of “digital soverengity” mentioned in the message. Under the Law “On New Digital Technologies”, adjustment was approved on June 25, 2020 which enabled defining requirements for protection of domain names within the space of Kazakhstani Internet segment.  

Since the adjustment approval, work began on its technical implementation. Thus, under the service for the Internet space monitoring, the domestic “WebTotem” system detected about 45000 domain names violating the above requirement.  

Relevant notifications were sent to “Kazakhstan Network Information Center” as well as to registrars and domain name owners so that they can verify or refute the violation until November 30, 2020.  

“Websites with Kazakhstani domain names should be allocated in local data centers and local IT developers should be engaged. Domestic businessmen, in their turn, should use local resources and production resources as much as possible, money should be invested into the country, not be spent outside the country in pursuit of fictitious cheapness of service abroad.   

If an owner refuses to transfer a website from a Kazakhstani domain name, it will be enough just to change a website name. For example, website named info.kz can be changed to info.kz.com or info.kz.org. It should be noted that the work done will not affect regular users and will remain almost invisible for them” commented Askhat Orazbek, Vice Minister of Digital Development, Innovations and Aerospace Industry of the RK.

The requirement will enable creating a multiplicative effect in the economy, such as more jobs in ICT field, utilization of surplus electricity, reduction of external Internet traffic, communication operators will be able to invest more in the development of local communication networks and improve the quality of services delivered.

The parties discussed topical issues of Kazakh-Russian cooperation in the space sphere, including the further development of the Baikonur complex. Issues related to the Baiterek (Nazarbayev start) and Gagarin start projects were discussed.

During the meeting, a Protocol was signed on amendments and additions to the Agreement between the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Government of the Russian Federation on the creation of the Baiterek space rocket complex at the Baikonur cosmodrome on December 22, 2004.

As part of the procedure, a contract was also signed for the provision of services for the creation of the Baiterek KRK, which in turn was signed by Andrey Okhlopkov, General Director of TsENKI JSC, and Kuat Mustafinov, General Director of the Kazakh-Russian joint venture Baiterek JSC.

Digitalization is a basic element of all the reforms as well as new capabilities for modern Kazakhstan

1 year 9 months ago

In his message, the President set areas for digitalization development in the country along with clear directions. Ministry of Digital Development, Innovations and Aerospace Industry (MDDIAI) developed the plan to achieve the goals set by the President. Large-scale projects have been implemented within the plan aimed at enhancing the living standards.   

In particular, two major projects are under implementation within the plan for provision of qualitative communication to citizens aimed at increasing coverage areas in rural districts with population of 250 people and more.

The project “FOCL to village” implies installation of optical cable in villages with its connection to schools, hospitals and akimats. To date, the Internet access via    fiber-optic communication has been provided to 835 rural and remote localities out of 1257. In total, the project will cover 2.4 mln people throughout the country.

The second project is a unique opportunity to provide communication to remote localities. The Ministry developed a mechanism under which communication operators regardless of competition use equipment of one of the operators to provide communication to citizens of all market players. The so-called “sharing” agreement was signed by the operators in early October this year.  

Moreover, MDDIAI discussed the issue of creating requirements to communication quality, which will enable detecting violations and applying sanctions against communication operators through fines or license revocation, in case if communication quality won`t comply with the requirements. Also, the Ministry raised the issue related to increase of fine sums for communication operators under the program for communication quality improvement in the country.       

Under transfer of all the statements in paper into online format, the work continues on defining the list of statements and integrations with one or another agency. To date, more than ten projects on transfer of paper statements into online format have been successfully implemented.     

In particular, such projects were implemented as establishment of IE via Kaspi.kz app, registration of consent for donation, making an appointment to Specialized CSC and CSC, obtainment of data from the land cadastre, transfer and re-admittance of students, assignment of payments to guardians and custodians, etc. As it was told by the President “that is data that should run, not people” and data run instead of people thanks to information systems integration with other agencies. Thus, Kazakhstani citizens do not have to visit government agencies to obtain a statement, now they can be obtained online.  

Also, now, ID documents are available in digital format in eGovMobile app. Now there is no need to carry them constantly for provision to third parties.   One can provide a driving license or national ID via smartphone. At the moment, an issue is under consideration on enshrining this capability in the legislation.  

In order to make the registration process on eGov as easy and convenient as possible, biometrics will be used, which will allow a person to register within a minute. There will be no need to undergo several authorization stages as it will be enough to look at a smartphone screen and it will identify a user by registering him/her.     

Implementation of the projects became possible due to infrastructure capacities which require update each year. In particular, at the moment, re-engineering of processes and elimination of the number of IT systems of certain agencies or their integration with a central one, so-called gateway, is required.  Currently, each agency has no less than 10 IT systems some of which are obsolete, so that is why it is important to analyze and create a relevant structure of systems, in order to see all the data that would enable analyzing and forecasting in the future, which in its turn will allow planning the work done by agencies.

In order to arrange the similar major countrywide projects, a relevant number of IT professionals is required, unfortunately there are not many of them on a local market. MDDIAI commenced the process of generating the knowledge database and creating the projects on training of specialists for local market as well as for export.   

In particular, MDDIAI in cooperation with private partners organizes acceleration programs for professionals, which involve workshops, seminars, etc. The programs enable our specialists undergoing advanced training and get certificates, which make them competitive on foreign markets.

1 year 9 months ago

Issues on automation of online apostilization and services of justice and internal affairs bodies were considered on the regular meeting of Inter-Departmental Commission for Public Service Delivery (IDC).

For the purpose of transparent and rational spending of budget funds as well as e-Gov resources, it is planned to use the “e-Apostille” software product designed by Ministry of Justice of RK as a single tool for online apostilization of documents for all concerned government agencies.  

Also, to facilitate the process and to exclude a requirement for submission of paper documents, for instance during registration of legal entity and registration of pledge for movable property, it was suggested by justice bodies to work out the possibility of data upload through “e-Notary” system. This can be powers of attorney or data on transactions or actions, which require mandatory registration in government agencies.      

In its turn, Ministry of Internal Affairs of RK provided information on the work done under partial transfer of migration service functions (acceptance of citizens) related to documentation to “Government for Citizens” Public Corporation.

To control the spread of the coronavirus infection and timely localize the infection sites, Ministry of Digital Development, Innovations and Aerospace Industry in cooperation with Ministry of Health of RK presented the “Saqbol” mobile app.  

The app allows a citizen tested positive for COVID-19 enable a notification function and anonymously notify other app users about a contact with him/her within the last 14 days on a distance less than two meters and within more than 15 minutes.  

Storage of records on interaction with other devices will also be encrypted.  

To use the “Saqbol” app, one needs to download it to a smartphone and enable Bluetooth function through which transmission of encrypted data is performed. The app is available for IOS and Android.

According to Bagdat Mussin, the app will enable timely notifying of citizens on a possible risk of contagion and thus, significantly reduce the spread of infection.  

I urge Kazakhstani citizens actively use the app, be conscious and responsible. Thus, we will be able to localize the infection sites to the maximum and prevent spread of COVID-19.     We comprehend responsibility before citizens and created the app in a way that all personal data is encrypted and the app ensures absolute anonimity of users” commented Bagdat Mussin, Minister of Digital Development, Innovations and Aerospace Industry of RK.

Thereby, the app can increase the citizens awareness and timely notify them about contacts with infected people” added Alexey Tsoy, Minister of Health of RK.

Users getting a notification can familiarize with the recommendations of Ministry of Health of the Republic of Kazakhstan on further actions in the app.

Moreover, for user convenience, such services as official COVID-19 self-diagnosis bot, i-Doctor, i-Teka and updated COVID-19 statistics for Kazakhstan were integrated in the app.
