Computer systems of information security is a new and rapidly developing area of science. It includes cryptographic, mathematical, hardware and software, technical, legal and organizational methods and ways of information security in obtaining, processing, storage and transmission in computer systems and networks. These methods provide information integrity and confidentiality that is important today in almost every sphere of activity. Information security plays especially important role in banking and financial institutions, security services, police and army.

The main activities of graduating students

Students of this specialty create and develop protected information systems for information gathering, processing, storage and transmission.
