Becoming ISO 27001 lead auditor

I read on Advisera (https://advisera.com/27001academy/knowledgebase/how-to-become-iso-27001-lead-auditor/) that for obtaining the 27001 LA certification, 4 years of experience, 2 of which is InfoSec, is required. Unfortunately, I have less than a year of experience in InfoSec. So does that mean I can't get the certification even if I clear the test?

Answer:

I think there is misunderstanding here. The requirement of 4 years of experience, 2 of which is InfoSec, refers to someone that wants to work as an auditor for an certification body. This requirement is not applicable for the Lead Auditor certification purposes, so you can get the certification if you pass the ISO 27001 Lead Auditor exam.
