Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

There is a Ridiculous amount of books on both of these subjects. Could you narrow your focus at all? If you are just looking for basic overview type of material, I would suggest CompTIA A+ and Comptia Netword+ study guides from Sybex. They are usually very thorough without being too dry and should give you a basic understanding of both.

Hope this helps,

    This is a very difficult question to answer! The real answer is, "It Depends..." It depends on why you are asking this question, what your experience level is and the types of systems you are working on. It also depends if you are a technician, a system administrator, a systems architect or a CTO. Think about the variety of security questions there are right now. Of course there is the need to secure data on the private servers... but there are topics within security that focus on securing the wireless network including smart phones on the network. There are high level topics around consolidated security models vs distributed security models. There are also very nuts and bolt conversations about PKI, Smart cards and various biometric systems. These subjects barely touches the surface of security, but each topic has many books, white papers and even conventions on these subjects. If you are looking for good books on the subjects like security and IT Support rather than looking for authors on specific subjects, I'd start with ITIL. ITIL lays out the processes for managing the various IT processes. Part of that layout includes standard known processes that inculde IT Support (Incident Management) and Security is interwoven throughout these processes. Just to let you know it takes five years of experience in a particular technical subject to be competent. You really can't just read a book and become an expert in a broad technical subject like Security. Most technical security experts are experts in multiple technical topics before they begin the five years needed to be a technical expert.
