I know they are a World apart.

Indeed! That's why I chose to certify for both. My undertanding is that BS 
gives you pretty much the business perspective on security while CISSP gives 
you the technical/operational perspective. I wanted both!

I strongly suggest security professionals to go for both (given the time, the 
money, and the curiosity for an holistic view of one's profession). The only 
warning is that at times clients are not sure to what kind of professional 
they're talking to... as long as YOU know, it's a minor issue :-)
