I don't have any experience with these yet but my degree (grad May 2011) puts me into this area. Hopefully by the time I have the money saved up I will also have my CHFI, CCFE, and my CCE.
Although I plan mostly on doing Forensics I think that I can expand my knowledge while the Navy pays (MGI Bill) pays for these classes and who knows the Forensics thing may not work out as planned.
