LPIC-1 vs Linux+

I am fairly new to Linux. I have decent administrative skills and I have been using it on and off for a few years. Currently I am starting to study the OS more seriously and would like some advice on which cert is more worth while. Should I study for the Linux+ or LPIC-1? My current career path is leaning more towards security and I believe that good Linux skills are essential to success in this area. Thanks!
Here are a couple links regarding the 2 exams:
I think I am going to take your advice on getting both as I can make the LPIC a bit more long range. And getting the Linux+ on my resume will at least say I know the fundamentals.

I think there are plenty of HR people who have never heard of either one too.
Just an opinion here, but I think the "+" on the end of the Linux relates it to A+ and catches the attention of HR departments and hiring managers who may not be up to speed on current certifications. But who hasn’t heard of A+?
As far as getting your foot in the door, I would say Linux+ following the above logic. Then let your experience and charisma sell you once you are at the Interview.
