IT Security, What qualifications should I get?

By james.trevaskisja ·
Afternoon All,

Im 20 and Im currently working in a Desktop Support role for a major company in Australia.

Im currently studying my MCSE and Ive done a network administrator certificate at tafe college.

What Im looking to do long term is move into IT Security, I want to focus on server security but branch out into all round network security in the future.

I want to get a CCNA certificate when I complete my MCSA, then Im lost where to move to.

I also want to get some sans certificates; GCWN (Securing Windows), GCIA (Intrusion Detection In-Depth), GCFA (System Forensics, Investigation and Response)

Long term I want to get a cissa qualification.

Can anyone suggest what certificate I should go for, and possibly in what order? Thanks

Im interested in some of the SANS certificates

What you need more than Certs is experience. Certs are like school. Says you know the material. Certs don't say, you know how to apply that material in a real world setting.
