What is Computer Security and how do I become an expert in it?

Do I need to have programming skills? If yes, which languages do I need to know/ work with?
If programming skills are not needed, what is needed?

    Computer security deals with securing computers and their networks…..
    No programming skills are needed, unless you want to search for bugs in programs etc

    Some universities offer courses or/and you can enroll for a course at one of the specialist malware removal forums, such as MalwareRemoval.com although I don’t think they are accepting new entrants at the moment.

    Start with free background knowledge and narrow down your choices as you go along.
    A fab place to start is ‘Security Now’; a long running series of podcasts, with Steve Gibson & Leo LaPorte in a casual ‘chat’ format, covering basic computer security, internet, networking, and it’s easy to understand (in a relative way.)
    Start with episode 1, and go from there.
    You won’t be sorry.
