The disproportionate supply/demand ratio of information security consultant manpower is worsening yearly. It is necessary to analyze the specialized knowledge and skills required of information security consultants in their fulfilling job responsibilities, and to reflect the findings in developing and operating training programs. To identify the job requirements of information security consultants across industries, the present paper comparatively analyzed job descriptions posted on monster.com and jobkorea.co.kr sites. Based on the analysis results, the present study defined the job requirements and selected certain items of knowledge and skills valued across industries to help lay the foundation for training programs conducive to demand-oriented manpower cultivation.
