I need some advice and recommendations

I'm about to do my master and I need to make a decision on what course I should take now I have two options either computer forensics or information security

what I want to know is:

is the difference/gap between these to big

do they have some kind of relative connection so if I take any of them I can still go and practice the other filed -in case I wanted to change my job field.

give me some advice I would love to hear from those professional or experts on these fields as thy can help with their experiences[/list]

    I can only speak from my experience on the computer forensic side of things, but I will tell you that the places I work with in the public sector would not hire someone without a computer forensic degree and/or experience in that field. In my opinion, they are wise to follow that policy. While a computer security degree will give you lots of experience with technology, there is much more to computer forensics than simply being knowledgeable about technology.

    That being said, a masters is usually not required to get into the computer forensic field. If you do get your computer security degree and decide to switch, an associates in computer forensics would probably give you enough of a base to get you an interview.

    well during my bachelor (computer networks and security) we had computer forensic subject where we studied that field :types,methods and techniques
    and as far as I know that moving from information security to forensic is much helpful and easier than doing it the other way around
    as information security is wider than forensic which I believe is kind of portion or part of other one.
