I find the solution myself. I created the biber.conf file with the following rules:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <maps datatype="bibtex" bmap_overwrite="1">
        <map_step map_field_source="AUTHOR"
                map_match="Surname, Name"
                map_replace="\\textbf{Surname, N.}"/>

You save biber.conf file in the same location as *.tex file and compile *.tex file as usually.
