    All of their offerings (well, many of them) will have some tie in with the DoD requirements so they are worth quite a bit considering they are required for you to hold the position.

    Of the three cert orgs you mention , I think GIAC stuff is the most practical but least known. By the way, SANS doesn't offer the certification, just the training. GIAC is the cert org.

    ISC2 certs are the well known. But they are less technical.

    ISACA is decent but the material is so dry. The CISA is unique because it's so focused on audit. But the CISM is often interchangable with the CISSP on job reqs.

    The point is is there are no silver bullets, and many of us have certs from all three of the above (plus some).
