    And does Security+ equal a Bachelor's Degree?

    This article says that the CISSP and Masters degree are equivalent under the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) by UK NARIC. This would be like the CISSP being equivalent to other certifications in some categories of the DDoD 8570.01. It is not a declaration that a CISSP is equivalent to a Master degree in every context in the EU.

    Good comparison JDMurray. The article seems to market the CISSP as a replacement for a Masters degree, which it's not.

    Woahh! That's huge. Especially for people from under developed countries because their study degrees are not recognized globally.
