Default Information Security

Ok i found this site that shows a map of different certs on different aspects of Computers. Im currently attending college for an associates. But im also going to get Certs for Computer Security. under the security chart there begins A+ which is where im starting then goes to Server+ then Network+ then Security + ending at Checkpoint CCSA. This was the route i figured on taking if its accurate. It just didnt make sense to me to Get server+ before Network+. Any suggestions on this route?

I would suggest getting your Network+ first, but you don't HAVE too. All CompTIA certs are entry level, and really broad. The only reason I could see to take the Server+ first is because there is probably overlap in the material from A+.

Make sure before taking the Security+ that you study a lot. That is probably their hardest cert. You also are going to want to get the CISSP certification, but for this one you will need a minimum of 5 years professional experience.
