Security Certification

By quintar51 ·
I'm interesting in going into the security field. What are some of the certifications that are commonly looked for? I am MCSE certified, but these days, Microsoft and Security don't seem to belong in the same sentence :)

I also want to add that I only have about 2-3 years experience. So I'm looking for a certification that's a good starting block on which I can build further.

Unfortunately most of the really meaninful security certifications (such as CISSP) require 3-5 years demonstrated experience specifically in the security field.
