How do you build a secure career in IT?

samson06
I'm 28, been in the field for 8 1/2 years. I have a Bachelor's degree in CIS. Although I have certifications, I've managed to do alright in this field. The pay isn't extraordinary (far from what they said in the late 90s) but I make enough to pay my bills and then some. Anyway, how does one build a secure career in IT? Are certifications necessary? A masters degree in computers? MBA? A dual degree with another field? Or is it better to be a jack of all trades? I'm mainly talking about making a decent living in this field for decades.
