Information security career

Thank you for your lectures on ISO 27001,

Sir I am a certified LA in ISO 9001 2015 and certified ISO 14001 and 45001 Auditor, B.sc, MBA

in short, I don't have any experience in ISMS, but I want to pursue my career in ISMS, is it the right thing to do knowing that I don't have any IT background, and if yes how should I start ...

what other skills should I learn to make a good international career out of ISMS...

First is important to note that you do not need an IT background to work with an Information Security Management System (certainly an IT background is helpful, but it is not mandatory).

Considering your ISO background, the first step is for you to decide which path you want to follow considering security management or security assurance (i.e., security audit), and for these areas, you have the following ISO 27001 career you can follow:
- ISO 27001 Lead Implementer – this certification recognizes people who have competency in the ISO 27001 implementation process.
- ISO 27001 Lead Auditor – this certification recognizes people who have competency in auditing an ISM S against ISO 27001 requirements and want to become certification auditors (and with this provides more confidence to an organization for being certified).
