Well, I don't think there is really a way to measure one's expertise regarding Information security, Would you trust you're money with some banker who just finished his economics degree and opened a bank? , I guess, as in many fields, so in the Information security business, experience,recommendation and reputation will be the criteria, one cannot simply take a test and become a security engineer (although many people claim to be a lot of things... :) ).

I was asked to prepare syllabus for security management,incident handling,forensics analysis, intrusion detection etc., Th intention is train an engineer to become a SECURITY engineer.

we know there are several certifications which are designed for this purpose. I want from you with your security experience tell us what should an BASIC course for security really requires.

If industry wants to recruit an engineer for its security needs what type of experience they look for?

Note: Please dont relate my question with any certifications and be generic.

Thanks for any help,
