    I'm not a big shot in anyway lol, but I'd start with the Security+. It goes along with the DoD directive and is offered as a lifetime cert if you get it before January 11th 2011.

    You can start with Security+ Certification.

    If you want to get into Application Security ie., Vulnerability Assessment,Source Code Review, u need to prepare for VA Tools like IBM APPSCAN,FORTIFY,etc. There are a lot of Commercial Tools and Open Source Tools available for Application Security.
    Thanks & Regards
