Read all the phrack magazines, starting with #40 or later.

Learning ASM, Hex Math, C, Binary math, C++ can't hurt.

Study AJAX/XML/WebDAV/.Net/Java, web 2.0 is the future and vulnerable.

SQL is good, so is Oracle.

Learn the Management side of Security: End users will always be the
weakest link, and management is how you deal with them.

Social Engineering will never die, even though I have it through good
authority that buffer overflows will.
