I would say the four main certs to get are:
CCNA
CISSP
MCSE
LCP or another Linux cert

These four cover all the major areas of computers.

Though that is just my opion

Subject: Which CERT to get

Hello List, 
   I would like to get some opinions on which cert would be better to
get.  I know this has been discussed a bit here on the list, but I
have a couple specific certs I mind.  I was wanting to know which
would be the better one to pursue, the CISSP or the
SSCP?  Both are from ISC2.  I am presently trying to get into the
security field and have been told the CISSP would be the best one to
get, but it seems to be a bit more managerially focused.  I'm not
really trying to be a Security manger.  I would like
to have the more technical skills.  Is the SSCP more technical or is
it similar to the CISSP?  Any opinions and advice would be greatly
appreciated.  Thanks.  

Thank You,
