Murad, et al...

Your best investment comes from New Riders publishing.  They have a series
of books focused on security mostly from and or by/overseen Stephen
Northcutt.  Network Intrusion Detection will teach you all about reading
"the wire".  Intrusion Signatures and Analysis will help you learn more and
Network Perimeter Security is a good primer...

Lots of luck.

Back when you were a security nipper playing with netstat and gurgling =

I've inherited a 50 node network and am just getting into learning how =
to secure it.
Any suggestions gratefully accepted.
