I work in the IT Security profession as an IT auditor. My boss a couple of months ago recently suggested I enroll in the PCI Internal Security Assessor (ISA) program to become certified to conduct the annual PCI compliance certification. My employer like many places processes business online via payment cards. (Visa, MasterCards...etc) We are currently PCI level 3.
As per the PCI Council, this certification does not transfer to a new employer. One must also be sponsored by their employer to qualify as a PCI ISA. This certification is extremely relevant to what I do as a professional, assessing risk, but I am skeptical of putting it on my resume once earned, because I cant't use it without being re-sponsored by my new employer once leaving my old employer.
How much value do certifications such this one add?
How can one best present non - transferable certifications if worthwhile on one's resume without misleading?
