Agreed, the CISSP is wide and shallow and management-oriented, the SANS GIAC
certs are narrow and deep and engineering-oriented, although they do offer a
management-oriented one also. The GSEC that I have is the widest and still
fairly deep cert they offer.  FYI, of the two, I found the CISSP much easier
to pass.  I only put it up front because it seems to be more respected,
being the oldest of the security certs and now requiring a bachelors degree
as a pre-requisite.
