That depends on what is your current job function or your ideal job. If you are currently working on routers, routing, switches, and vlans you should take CCNP. If you are currently working on firewalls, ids, ips, and vpn you should take CCSP.

However, since network and security compliments each other, having both are the best. But take one first that closely related to your current job or you think it will be easier for you to understand.

Two basic rules in life (business life anyway)....

Have fun. Make money.

Not necessarily in that order, but if they aren't related, then you won't be happy with stuff. So do whichever path you WANT to do and what will make the most sense from a job perspective. Whether the job you have now, or the one you want tomorrow.

Life is all about goals. Find them, set them, get them and make more!

I'd suggest going for the CCNP first as it is a natural continuation for the CCNA. If you are dead set on going for your CCIE Security, then the CCSP would be the next logical step. Do what you like to do, and do it well! My recommendation is CCNP to get a solid foundation in R&S, but the choice is ultimately yours.
