GSEC is considered more of a technical cert; CISSP more of a management one. This is simplifying things greatly, 
admittedly, but that's how the two are often differentiated. I know when I did my GSEC I had to know Windows and Linux 
commands and configurationsto give you an idea of why this differentiation is made.

Subject: The Value of GIAC/GSEC Certification

Does the GIAC/GSEC certification have value for someone with the CISSP  

I am planning on getting my CISSP this year, but I may have a chance  
to go for the GSEC a bit earlier.  Would that add any value, or is it  
a waste of time if I can attain the CISSP?
