Abstract: The IT industry in Korea, having recognized the importance of Information Security (IS), is in pressing need of IS Managers (ISMs) and IS System Developers (ISSDs). Many educational institutions, both universities and training organizations, are developing IS courses to meet this demand. For these educational programs to be successful, their design should address the specific knowledge required by IS professionals. In this paper, the authors first identify and rank the knowledge requirements of IS professionals using a simplified Delphi technique. They then, through refined analysis, come up with two sets of 15 specific educational requirements, one each for ISMs and ISSDs.

Keywords: Educational requirement, Information security manager, Information security system developer, Delphi approach
