    Which of the following programs do you think may give me some good background knowledge, to prepare me for an undergraduate degree in Computer/Web Security and/or Masters.

    - Computer Engineering Technician / Technology
    - Computer Programmer
    - Computer Systems Technology - Systems Analyst Co-op
    - Computer Systems Technician - Software Engineering
    - Computer Systems Technology- Software Development and Network

    Homo, you know what I do and who i work for, you could have just asked :p

    I would say Systems Analyst and Software development and network.
    Even though you will be going for an undergrad or masters, unfortunately the security industry is big on certs and those two will help you most for the exams. Sad but true, while you are at it, study CISSP, CISA and CISM.
    You will still need to line up some exp, but, let me know when you need a hand for that as I can help you with the xp stuff here in the GTA.

    :o

    I totally forgot.

    Alright thanks man.

    I dont really have enough time ATM to start up both of those programs. Out of the System Analyst and Software Devel./Network, which would you chose?

    Once i finish this program, i'll be taking a bridging program into a IT security course which should give me a lot of the core skills.

    personally, i would choose software devel for the courses.
    At the same time, i would read up on A+ certs, its a lame ass cert but it will give you a head start into system analyst.

    Typically, you want the program that will give you scattered knowledge across everything. Keep in mind, you won't typically be a master at all of them though.

    imo, school is useless. In all the people I've hired I never look at school, always look at experience.
