I just graduated from college with a BS in information security. I landed a job in gov't contracting with security policy writing. I really want to go into forensics. I took a class in undergrad, but I know I need more experience than that. Should I just bank on my security degree and get a few certs? (Which ones?) Or should I go ahead and get my masters in CF, or will that make me overqualified? Should I get both certs and masters? I want to stay working in some form for gov't, either directly or contracting. So which path is best?

IMHO - training is expensive and getting a job in CF is hard too.

Stick with the company you are working with and see if they can train and move you into the forensic component of their business - assuming they have one.

Good luck!

You guys should be looking at law firms and the vendors that serve them. There is a tremendous need for people with this skillset. Look for jobs with "litigation support" in the title or find a "litigation support" recruiter and you shouldn't have any problems finding a job (a very good paying one).
