Only experience is not enough. When you get to this level of security administration, certifications are mandatory. The most frequently mentioned certifications are:

  • CISA: Certified Information Systems Auditor
  • CISM: Certified Information Security Manager
  • CISSP: Certified Information Systems Security Professional
  • CISSP-ISSMP: Information Systems Security Management Professional

Hey Karan, Security Directors are quite high up in the hierarchy, so certifications are recommended. Generally speaking, CISSP and CISM are the two most requested certifications in Security Domain. Some of the certifications of good importance are:

  1. CISM: Certified Information Security Manager
  2. CISSP: Certified Information Systems Security Professional
  3. CISSP-ISSMP: Information Systems Security Management Professional
  4. GSLC: GIAC Security Leadership
