As the functional lead for Digital, Data and Technology, GDS has responsibility for digital skills across government. At present, no mandatory cybersecurity courses are offered by the GDS Academy. The Government Digital Service (GDS) works closely with colleagues at the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and the Government Security Group (GSG) who provide training on cyber security across government. GSG also leads the Government Security Profession, which includes cyber security professionals across government.
