Computer Forensics Career
I am new to the security field, as you can tell by my name. I am currently working as a web server administrator, and I have about 4 1/2 years of I.T experience. I also have a B.S in Computer Info Sys. I am very interested in moving into the computer forensics field, and I have thought about pursuing a M.S in Information Security, but I'm not sure it would be worth the money. The program is very expensive and, I don't have any forensics experience. I have also thought about becoming a certified law enforcement officer, but not to become a police, just to have a law enforcement background. Do you all think it would be wise to just go for some entry- level certs and maybe get certified in law enforcement V.S M.S in Info Security?
