How does the cert path I came up for a Network Security Engineer look?

Working my way from top to bottom and currently studying for CCENT which I take on March 6th
CCENT – MAR 2015
CCNA:R&S - JUL 2015
CCNA:Sec - OCT 2015
CCNP:Sec – ?? 2016
GSEC ??
CEH ??
CISSP ??

Was looking at other GIAC certs and a few of those look pretty interesting as well! Would probably go for those down the line somewhere as well.

Been in level I and II help desk for about 3 years wasting my time away. Last year got a job where I'm pretty much the only IT guy supporting about 100 people so doing the Jack of All Trades position atm. Planning on looking for more Networking specific jobs after I get my CCNA R&S this summer.

Any opinions or suggestions are appreciated

    Looks good, splitting the CCNA into 2 parts is a smart move. Have you looked at GPEN? There are a ton of options. So pick what you like best and run with it.
