The government does not hold figures on the breakdown of security training delivered to
staff and contractors centrally. Departments are responsible for ensuring their staff and
contractors are appropriately trained, subject to their role, business context and specific
risks

We recognise that targeted training to drastically reduce human error by staff and
contractors is crucial to delivering the National Cyber Security Strategy. We have
established a Government Security Profession to provide a consistent approach to cyber
security skills development across government.
