I’m planning on getting into Computer/Network Security as a career. What topics should i learn?

Programming languages, computer topics or essential things that i can read/learn in a book. Things i already have knowledge of are php, oracle, c++, java, linux, visual basics, xml, perl. Which of these should i go further in depth, plus others?

    For the very best background education, that’s entirely free, go to ‘Security Now’ podcasts with Steve Gibson & Leo Laporte.
    These are 1hr. ‘sit down’ chats, that cover current issues, the how & why, with remedies for security issues, related to internet, networking, etc.
    You’ll need to start with the early ‘casts because these are computer functions & basics, and occasionally it gets a bit tekky, but Steve & Leo do it in real easy to understand chat format, that makes it painless, fun, & interesting (if you like the tech stuff to start with).
    College level education, free.
