Career development of information security

I have over 12 years of experience in ITES in Infrastructure Services including recent 5 year's experience in the eDiscovery domain. I am currently working as an Assistant Manager and would like to move my career to Information Security domain and also seeking for next level position as well in my current org. I would like to know which certification would help me to grow ISO 27001 or CISM.

Although ISO 27001 and CISM main focus is on information security management, CISM goes deeper into the strategic relationships between information security and the information systems and business objectives.

Considering that and your stated profile, you should consider CISM.

On the other hand, if in the future you want to become a consultant or auditor, then ISO 27001 certifications would be a better choice. 
 
If you want to consider an ISO 27001 career you can follow:
- ISO 27001 Lead Implementer – this certification recognizes people who have competency on the ISO 27001 implementation process.
- ISO 27001 Lead Auditor – this certification recognizes people who have competency on auditing an ISMS against ISO 27001 requirements and want to become certification auditors (and with this provides more confidence to an organization for being certified).
