It does depend on the type of security consulting you'll be specializing in, retail, computer, industrial (my niche), forensic, etc.
I have been working in the security management field for 18 years, with law enforcement and military before that. Organizational and time management are good to have, along with dealing with vendors, senior mgmt, security survey, etc.
I attended a security consulting seminar from the International Association of Professional Security Consultants (IAPSC) in 2004. They stated $150/hr was the going rate then, even for start-up companies.
