IT security professionals with the right skills are in high demand. In 2015, the unemployment rate for information security managers averaged 0.9%, which is as close to full employment as you can get. However, one of the things hiring managers still complain about is a lack of skilled IT professionals, as evidenced by the frustration CISOs and others express after interviewing candidates.

Below is a list of interview questions categorized by different cybersecurity job roles intended to reveal a candidate’s strengths and most glaring weaknesses. Categories include:

  • General IT Security Administration
  • Network Security
  • Application Security
  • Security Architect
  • Risk Management
  • Security Audit, Testing and Incident Response
  • Cryptography

The questions evaluate a broad range of candidates’ technical skills, understanding of cybersecurity terminology and technology as well as their ability to think and solve problems.
