Path to Begin for Security Professional

I am the Director of Security for a medium sized business, and have worked in Security for quite some time. I have my CISSP among others. Unfortunately, I am not up to speed on many of the entry level certificates that exist these days. I have a co-worker that has recently worked in sales completing RFP's, but has a lot of institutional knowledge on overall security audit tasks as she has assisted me with SOC 2 preparation among other things. She's a good friend of mine and wants to be out of the Sales role and focus on Security to actually begin a career path. She is a very sharp lady, young and VERY detail oriented. Therefore, I am bringing her onto my staff to assist with SOC 2 audit, internal client security audits, policy work, etc. I will teach her the in's and out's of Risk Assessments, vulnerability scanning and more.

What would you recommend for certs to learn the basics. I have already recommended the SEC+ cert as well as possibly tackling the GISF. She is NOT highly technical in terms of existing networking/IT knowledge, but she is very knowledgeable of business processes, and security fundamentals. I am essentially taking her under my wing to help her on this path.

Again, I don't see her being a pen tester or along those lines. What would be the recommended path for non-technical certs that you all recommend. I have my own thoughts, but wanted to really hear from others as my views may be tainted.
