I can personally say, the Computer Security degree I received was a great experience, but the ROI is negligible. Now, if you plan on teaching, then getting a Ph.D. is a great idea, as well as a necessity.

One of the best bang for your buck Master's degree are the ones offered by Georgia Tech. They run 7-10k dollars and they have a lot of great specialized areas (analytics, machine learning, etc).
