There are many useful books and I think it's hard to pick just one or a few since different books suite different persons and needs. There is however one book that I would like to recommend, although not technical. It's called "Hackers: Crime in the Digital Sublime
", written by Paul A. Taylor. This book is much more well-balanced than other books I've read that aim to describe hackers. I think it should be mandatory reading for everybody who haven't been actually talking to "real hackers" themselves but still want to work with security. It should also be mandatory reading for hackers themselves.
In your opinion, what are the most important things an administrator has to do in order to keep a network secure?
