    The best way to get in to Security?

    Hi,
    I'm an IT major who works as a helpdesk tech., but wants to get in to IT Security. Any Suggestions? What books are best, what certifications should I go for, what are the best on-line sites, and what programs are good to work with. I've done security for my home pc's, but that's it. Any information would be helpful. Thanks.

    SANS has a lot of good stuff. You don't necessarily have to go to the courses, just read some of the articles.

    As for certifications, these are some of the major ones. They have slightly different focuses (policy vs practice, that sort of thing), so do some investigation:
    Safe computing is a habit, not a toolkit.
