Hi, I wanted to know what I should do to pursue a field in IT Security. My dream goal is to start a private IT security firm and accomplish contracts for companies and governments around the globe. Obviously, however, I know I need to get experience first. Do any of you have an idea on what major I should pursue and certifications? I plan on getting an undergrad in Accounting Information Systems (a good choice because my professors believe most security deals with financial data) and a Masters in Information Technology Management. Any help is appreciated, thanks!
