Abstract: This study aims to develop an education framework for system security manager via job analysis. By developing an education framework as basis for acquiring the job skills to become a system security manager, we intend to elucidate the job profiles necessary for information security professionals, and offer relevant information and guidelines. To achieve this goal, this study is organised as follows: first, jobs required from a system security manager are derived; second, knowledge and skills required to perform those jobs and duties are proposed; third, a frame curriculum is established based on those knowledge and skills; lastly, roadmaps for paths toward system security manager are presented based on this frame curriculum. This education framework will serve as standard for curricula for system security-related education, training programs, and criteria for evaluating the program participants' knowledge, skills, and proficiency levels as industrial human resources (HR).

Keywords: information security professionals; job analysis; education framework; system security; security management; job skills; training; management education.
