Computer security profession

How does a person begin a computer security career in forensics/investigations?

I have a background in physical security, supervision and training. I also have a BS in criminal justice.

I am a novice computer user and work on the line in law enforcement.

What training or/and experience does one need? Is computer security expected to be a growing profession?

I would be guessing if I tried to provide information on forensics/investigations. However I can confirm that computer security continues to be at the top of every IT Managers list of priorities. This "White/blue Collar" crime is becoming more and more sophisticated and hackers will continue to get pleasure from the frustrations they cause. Not to mention international hooligans. We have recently seen more and more articles published on IT Security concerns. Thank you for helping to secure our future!
