1Password hands down is one of the best apps you could own. It's even better if you have an iPhone.

I went through the same exercise a while ago and wrote about it here:

Quicksilver, iWork (Pages is great once you get over the learning curve), NetNewsWire, OmniGraffle, OmniOutliner, Things, Cyberduck, and if you like music, Audio Hijack Pro.
Here are a few I use on a regular basis, I'm sure I am missing lots of other good ones:
TrueCrypt: Recently Made available for the Mac
iStat Pro Widget: Provides a quick view at system resources from the dashboard
Remote Desktop Connection version 2: In case you need access to a window box
Disk Inventory X: See what is taking up your hard drive space.
MenuMeters: Another system resource monitoring app
Wiretap Pro: Audio recording
SnapzProX: Image and video capture software
Parallels: Couldn't live without my vm's
MacTheRipper: Ripping DVD's
LogMeIn Free: For remotely controlling your Mac.
Mozy: Online backup
Net Monitor (http://homepage.mac.com/rominar/net.html)
Mac ports (http://www.macports.org/)

CISSP will always have its value. It's like living in the air but don't really think of the importance of it. When you go for changing your job – all certs, and of course CISSP, come in handy. And not all, but some companies actually see these certs differently. Speaking from experience. If you have one – it's worthwhile maintaining it – specially when the company pays – the employer should always pay (unless you can not justify yourself!!).
