Education path to become a CSO

I am an IT tech, and I think I would like to work my way to be a Chief Security Officer. I don't have any security...

certifications, yet. Could you tell me how I should proceed?

Given the current landscape of vendor-neutral security certs, I recommend a "security certification ladder" that individuals can start at any point (depending on current knowledge, skills and experience) and climb from there in the tip Certification path for future CSO.
