Answer:

First step is for you to decide which path you want to follow among these general fields: security management, security assurance (i.e., security audit), or technical security, and this last one has many sub fields (e.g., software development, security operation, etc.). Once you have decided this path there are many certifications available for each field (e.g., CISM for security management, CISA for security assurance, and CISSP for overall technical security).

Considering specifically 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 ISMS against ISO 27001 requirements and want to become certification auditors (and with this provides more confidence to an organization for being certified).

Answer:

ISO 27001 Internal Auditor is someone with competence to audit an ISMS against ISO 27001 so he/she can perform audits for his/her organization, while the ISO 27001 Lead Auditor is someone who has competency on auditing an ISMS against ISO 27001 requirements and is qualified to become a certification auditor (i.e., capable to work for a certification body).
