CISSP: it is as much a management certification so I personally would
make that the first one to go after if you have not already.

Subject: IT Manager to CISO

Hi all,

I'm currently the de facto IT manager for a small IT services firm. The
nature of our business requires that we follow PCI standards as per
logical security. Here's the thing, the CISO is leaving next month, and
I've been told I'll be taking his position. I already have a lot of
exposure to info sec, I have a CCNP (the former version with ISCW) and a
I'm an MCP (Active Directory for WS 2008). What I need to know is what
cert I should go out there and get to make me more cemented in this new
CISO role, at least to keep the auditors happy, as they sometimes like
to question your competence. The outgoing CISO, even though he was
trained by some of our partners, had NO certs, and this exposed him to
uncomfy questions from hard nosed auditors. Security+ or CISSP exam? Or
any others? Any form of guiding light will be highly appreciated.
