About your experience in auditing in general
Being an ISO/IEC 27001 certified auditor since 2003, with time I acquired several professional qualifications (PECB ISO 22301, ISO 28000, ISO 37000, and ISO/IEC 27001 Master and ISACA International, CISA, CGEIT, CRISC). My certifications allowed me to audit organizations like DHS, PMO, the Parliament Hill, and several of the top Fortune 500 corporations. Today, in addition to my audit practice, I also provide internal audits, consultation on implementation, and VCISO services.
Auditing may look simple and easy, but it requires a good and factual understanding of the environment being audited, the scope, and the requirements against which a management system is being audited.
