Over 1000 words, without even answering the question. Great clickbait article.

For those who came here expecting an actual answer, its CISSP. Hands down CISSP is far more difficult and valuable than having the CEH designation.

In what way? It’s certainly not more valuable when trying to get a job. CISSP is one of the most sought after cyber security certs. If you’re talking about real-world knowledge it’s apples and oranges. One is a pen testing cert and the other is a security management and architecture cert.
