Next IT Certifications Around the World - Differences in Numbers and Popularity-3 Next

The Certified Information Security Auditor (CISA) certification is a competitor to the CISSP with some differences in intended focus and level of technical detail. That said, for job eligibility, the CISA replaces the need for a CISSP throughout Europe.

In Europe, the CISA cert is much more popular than the CISSP. This has to do mainly with reputation (CISSP is viewed as heavily U.S.-centric) and the fact that training availability is quite limited outside the U.S.

According to the ISACA website, there are more than 75,000 CISA certified individuals.

How do you and your list of certifications stack up in other countries? Do you know what you’re missing if you want to be valuable in Seoul or London? How are Americans and their training perceived elsewhere? If you ever want to live overseas, these are questions you have to ask. There are enough (bad) excuses to not move abroad – don’t let your professional training be another.   

Jeff Parker takes a look at several well-known certifications in this slideshow. Some are vendor specific, e.g., Microsoft and Cisco. Some are by discipline, e.g., information security and project management. The point, Parker advises, is to be aware. Open your global mind, so you can make a smarter decision toward the next certification. You may be surprised, relieved or even impressed with yourself! And if you work it right, you can jump several steps in your career at once.
