SEC+, CISSP.

The fastest way? 10+ years of study, testing, workforce, and more. It's a long hard road and there are no real shortcuts, just practice and dedication. If you don't love it you'll never make it so be sure it's what you want before you start.

Keep in mind the CISSP requires a minimum of 4 years of Fulltime security work experience or 3 years expereince plus college degree or 2 years expereince with a Bachelors or Masters degree.

This is taken from New Horizons Computer Training website:

Quote

Have a minimum 4 years of direct full-time security professional work experience in one or more of the ten domains of the information systems security CBK or 3 years experience plus a college degree or 2 years experience plus a Bachelor's Degree and a Master's Degree in Information Security from a Center of Excellence.

Valid experience includes information systems (IS) security-related work performed as a practitioner, auditor, consultant, investigator or instructor, that requires IS security knowledge and involves the direct application of that knowledge.

The required years of experience must be the equivalent of actual full-time IS security work (not just IS security responsibilities for the period); this requirement is cumulative, however, and may have been accrued over a much longer period of time.

It's one of if not the hardest certification. If you can pass that you're set and you can call yourself an expert with no frets.

...And yes I knew about the prereq
