What we do

The Government Security Profession brings together all security professionals working in government to help them gain the skills and knowledge they need to carry out their roles.

The Government Security Profession is a new Civil Service organisation that brings together all security professionals working in government and supports them gaining the skills and knowledge they need to carry out their roles.

The security profession has an increasingly important role to play in a more digital world. The vision is to create an energetic, forward-thinking and technically proficient profession for government that leads the way in balancing security risks with the delivery of cost-effective, high-quality services.
