Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.
I wrote a book on this very subject that you might be interested in…It’s called Hacking For Dummies and it’s all about vulnerability and penetration testing, plus a whole lot more on what it takes to build and maintain a successful information security program. The fully-updated 6th edition just came out a few months ago so it’s nice and fresh.
I’ve also written a few articles on vulnerability and penetration testing, so check those out. Best of luck! This is a great field to be in!

    I have Kevin's book Hacking for Dummies. Very well put together for someone just starting out. Easy to understand and get a grasp on it.
