Hi all,
      I am a little afraid and feeling silly to ask this here. But, I don't know any other place to do so. I am a  
Computer Applications student interested in information security. But I do not know where to start my learning from.

Could you guys kindly suggest what I should start learning first and how to proceed from there? Any online material 
and book names and references would be beneficial to me. I am from a very uneducated background and hence do not have 
any guidance from those around me.

Thank you for any replies.
