Before I go to the point, Let me conclude myself.

Education: M.Sc. InfoSec
Certificate that I passed: CCNA (expired 2 years ago), CEH v.7 (expired at the end of this month), CompTIA Sec+ (Passed yesterday)
Job: 1-month IT Security Analyst (Current) and Linux-based System Admin with 5 years experience
Interesting Topic: Digital Forensic,Incident Handling, Network Security
Goal: Be a specialist or a consultant

I'm curious which Certificates do I need to go next in a technical path? GSEC? CASP? or SSCP?

    for pentest: eCPPT -> OSCP - you will learn how attack, so same way how secure

    for forensic I think about take C)DPE

    That's a management path.

    It actually is not. They're frameworks for the line of business you're in. With your knowledge of CISCO R&S and linux, You could go CASP as a vertical move in technical path or ISACA CSX-Practitioner.
