Have you asked yourself these questions:
Is it part of your degree program?
Are you considering the CISSP to the GIAC 2700?
Why are you looking to get this certificate?
Do you need to work with the 2700 standards?
I received my GIAC 2700 certificate while getting my masters degree in Information Security and Assurance from WGU. While studying for the GIAC 2700, I studied material for the CISSP which is similar to the CISSP.
If you can answer the above questions, you a step closer to choose your certifications.
