Infosec certs are not just about showing employers or the community/world at large that you have knowledge. They can help one feel like they actually do know things and can contribute. This is what happened for me.
I think it is time that certs stop getting such a bad rap.


Agreed. The only thing a CS university degree shows is that you can endure the curriculum and cost of a university degree. All things considered, they are equal in evaluating the desire of someone to obtain a piece of paper declaring that they have passed a credentialing process.


@ScottMortimer CS in a University can do a good job of teaching basic networking, protocols and design. How OSes work and how to script and administer networks.
Certs are more current and have their place also.
