To a degree, these certs are globally recognized, but because none of them is globally available as yet, they are not as well recognized outside North America as they are inside North America. If you have some specific alternate geographical area in mind to work in, I'd suggest polling employers in that region to find out which security certifications they do recognize (or talking to recruiters who service those regions) and concentrate on chasing the certifications they know.
