Journal Journal: Ask Slashdot: Cybersecurity job interview questions

I have been helping my company's HR department go through resumes of IT professionals, helping to ensure that the quality candidates make it through the initial screening and get in touch with the hiring managers. With that, I have a slew of people with M.S. degrees in cybersecurity. As cybersecurity is not my exact specialty, I am creating a list of some good interview questions to find the best candidates. I already have the basic questions, (XSS, SQL injection, etc.) but I am looking for a few in-depth security questions to ask. Does anyone have some examples of difficult scenarios or previous interview questions that they have been asked when seeking a cybersecurity related position?
