Week Five Assignment Jarad Krum List and discuss professional certi cations related to IT Controls What are the advantages of these certi cations What additional areas or expansion of existing certi cations are needed This week we were asked to research and talk about certi cations relating to IT controls And in doing so I have found two such certi cations that I have heard of before in my travels These certi cations are CSIC and CSIP They stand for Certi ed Internal Control Specialist and Citi ed Internal Control Professional These certi cations are recognized world wide as a standard of practice They are important in ones IT career because they identify that the person has obtained a level of knowledge and has demonstrated that they are capable of preforming that skill In this case it is internal controls The advantages to this certi cation much like every certi cation is that they give your prospective employer or indeed current employer a certain level of con dence to your ability39s as a IT professional This certi cation proves that you can do the job that you claim that you can do These certi cations can also help to set yourself apart from your peers in the work market and work place By having these certi cations they allow you to show your employer that you are going above and beyond the normal call of duty to obtain a higher level of understanding at you place of work and in your chosen eld This in turn allows them to trust you more with certain aspects of yourjob which then opens more advancement opportunities to you down the road They may seem like a hassle to get and they are indeed are a pain to achieve but they are an investment in your future of your career These are a goo place to start with in the IT realm but I have seen many different certi cations and indeed think that all IT should have a level of certi cations A good rout to go would be C not entirely practical unless you are going to be writing a lot of code but it is widely used and instantly recognized as a popular certi cation NET a big one in today39s world it helps to show that you understand and can perform basic networking and internal communications work This I would think is the most important just to have as it is so very broad a certi cation For us as Information Security professionals I would think that Security would be a massive step in the right direction as it focuses primarily on ourjob in the security eld I have had friends go through this certi cation and they say its not that hard a cert to obtain but a very useful one in the job market today This is of course assuming you will be staying in this particular facet of IT realm There are many different Certi cations for an IT to have and indeed I would suggest getting and plan to personally as many as possible some are very hard to achieve but all of them are worth it There is no sure re way of proving your irreplaceable at a job then having the certi cations to prove it
