Just a suggestion. If this is a full time employee, get rid of the word Consultant and replace it with Manager if they oversee the security program and staff. Also, try aligning job titles and descriptions from here: NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework Work Roles
We have an issue within the industry of aligning job titles to responsibilities. If we as a whole try our best and pull from authoritative sources like this we can help combat the issue.
Get some initial experience in an entry-level Information Technology (IT) or information security position. Rise to the role of a security administrator, analyst, engineer, or auditor. Gain some appropriate information security certifications. Begin your career as a bonafide cybersecurity consultant.
