    What's your time frame? How soon do you want to be "Top Cyber Forensic Architect?" Are you located in India or Australia? Where do you want to work?

    Usually people come to the USA to get an education and some work experience, and then take that knowledge and skill back to their home county. The Internet has made it possible to get nearly the same experience wihtout leaving your home country, and it can be more inexpensive too.

    Do you know any other people that have already followed a path that your looking at? It helps if you can talk to someone local to you that has already made that choice to stay or leave.

    No idea what kind of Computer Forensic work is available in India, but because you're from/a citizen of that country, you'll probably have better luck getting into that field in your home country.

    In the US, Computer Forensic work is going to be primarily with Government and/or Law Enforcement Agencies, and you will not be able to work in those fields without being a U.S. Citizen. No green card, no H1B, or any form of work visa, will let you work in that career field in the US. Many of these jobs require a security clearance, which again, you can't get unless you're a U.S. Citizen.

    Because I don't live or work in India, nor do I have any interest in living or working in India. Why would I know what kind of opportunities are available for this career path in India?

    You would have better luck there because you are from there and a citizen of that country.

    You mean to say that Living in India provides better luck?

    No, I mean exactly what I said. You will have the most luck finding a career in Computer Forensics if you stick to searching in the country you are from or a citizen of.

    I am a US Citizen by birth. I would probably not be able to get this type of a job in India, France, Germany, etc. I could however very easily get this type of job in the US.

    You're from India, and a citizen of that country. You are very unlikely to ever work in Computer Forensics in any country outside of India, for reasons that I have already stated.

    I don't know how I can make it any clearer than that. There are other IT careers that you could easily do in any country regardless of where you are from. Computer Forensics just isn't one of them, because it's usually tied to Government/Law Enforcement/National Security type environments, that typically do not hire foreigners.

    Forensics means "in accordance with the law," or "related to the courts and legal system." One would first need to determine how electronic information storage systems (e.g., computers, hard drives, floppy discs, cell phones, iPods, digital cameras) are regarded by the legal system(s) of India. If information found on electronic storage system is not (or rarely) admissible in a court of law then there is no need for computer forensics in India. I, personally, have no idea, but I bet it's whatever the UK does.

    The "top" server admins can be perceived as those who hold the Microsoft Certified Master (MCM) title, which takes a long time to achieve and isn't achievable for most.

    Microsoft Learning: Microsoft Certified Master Program
    MCTS: Windows Vista, Configuration
    MCTS: Windows WS08 Active Directory, Configuration

    Or a RHCA if you are Red Hat shop. Or maybe a LPIC-3 if you are a different type of linux shop:
