What after CISSP?

Now that I'm officially done with the CISSP where should I head then ?

So far I was looking at C|EH or CISSP - ISSAP.

Any thoughts?

    I earned my C|EH after obtaining my CISSP; it was a very good move. For myself I am going to pick up a Linux certification; Either RedHat (RHCSA) or Linux + (LPIC-1). After which I am going to circle back around for a Project Management certification.

    Thanks Chivalry I will most likely do the C|EH too. I'm not quite sure how hard the ISSAP is going to be.

    6 figures

    At least according to some of these top 10 certification articles. :)

    I can see how CISSP and C|EH are not linear progressions, more of domain-focused tangents, but I would think C|EH would pre-date the CISSP in it's lesser complexity?

    Not horse before the carriage but ABC's before 123's, essentially.

    I'm not doing the CEH because I don't think that EC-Council is quite up to par for the prices they are asking.

    Next up for me will be either Linux or CISA. If I get into a networking role, then I will go for my CCNP. This fall I'm planning on starting a Master's program which will probably take up all of my time for at least 18 months. After that I will hopefully be with a company that will help me pay for certifications and can work towards some SANS/GIAC certs.

    Nothing apart from "Thank you JESUS".
