I recently got offered a promotion but as part of the package I've been requested to do ISO 27001, ITIL, ARPA and other kinds of training. I've previously avoided this sort of training as I felt it would 'distract' me from my technical security knowledge.
In terms of penetration testing, are these qualifications useful? Do these provide good frameworks for penetration testing? I have zero aspirations to become a non-technical manager (at least for the foreseeable future) and compliance/auditing doesn't interest me specifically. However, my knowledge around them is minimal so I'm curious if I should take them up on the offer or suggest technical training instead.
Hope someone can help.
