I recently had a friend in the industry ask me about information security certs.  My response included some links and advice on what security certifications RIM professionals could consider based on their experience.

Begin:

There are many out there.  Some of the more popular are from ISACA, ISC2, CompTIA, and SANS.  Below are some popular choices.

ISACA - Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) and Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) ( http://www.isaca.org/Certification/CISA-Certified-Information-Systems-Auditor/Pages/default.aspx  and  http://www.isaca.org/Certification/CISM-Certified-Information-Security-Manager/Pages/default.aspx

ISC2 - Certfied Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) ( https://www.isc2.org/Certifications/CISSP )

Comptia - Security+ CE ( https://certification.comptia.org/certifications/security )

SANS - Global Information Assurance Certification (GIAC) ( https://www.giac.org/certifications )

 

Depending on what one wants to do in information or cybersecurity, there are also software or ethical hacker certifications.

 

For RIM professionals I recommend looking into the Security+, CISA, or check out Drexel's program for their Cyber security grad certificate ( https://online.drexel.edu/online-degrees/law-degrees/cert-cyber-comp/index.aspx ​). 

 

CISM, CISSP, or GIAC are higher-level certs, like the CRM for records management.  Prior experience is usually required (for example, CISM requires 5 years of leading an information security function).
