Since the MCSE first came on the scene back in the 90's there will
always be people who are merely paper certified.

The same is true for the CISSP. Not all people who hold this
certification will be any more than paper professionals, but it must
also be remembered

that there are also people that hold the CISSP who will be very
technically competent.

Of course it is just paper, no different from OSCP.  In any profession
there will those who are not wholly competent.

I have seen this same problem so often it just eats me. I know a company
that had a test done by Earnest and Young in Nairobi, and the only
vulnerability that was found is the zone file transfer, and the guys are
CISSP certified, so whenever we meet with my fellow group of pentester
we laugh at it, saying,"u are vulnerable to dig!" Secondly u will see
employers, like a company called Safaricom employing CISSP, and the
other day i watched one of them trying to figure out how a SQLi really
works.

I think CISSP is just a paper. But business is always business.
