Not to put you off or anything, but there have been numerous threads dealing with each cert as well as which to do first, last, etc. There are also several articles about each of these.

Browse through some of those and let us know if you have a more specific question.

No worries. Probably don't even need search. Just go to the main board for this topic, and you'll see more than one thread that specifically addresses your questions.

Re: Security where to start!

I would also add that if you have just graduated, your best bet is to get some experience first. You can always go and get an entry type cert like Security+, but pretty much all other certs will be easier and more useful if you have some experience under your belt first.

Good luck!
