I just graduated college and I have the opportunity to take a job as a SOC analyst position with a small company in Pittsburgh. My main responsibility will be monitoring various clients network traffic for malicious activity. The IDS we will be using is SNORT and I was wondering if anyone could recommend any good books or articles to help me learn it.

As of now I have no expereine with IDS's, but I feel I have a pretty good understanding of TCP/IP and some of the latest malicous trends. I am also reading network intrusion detection 3rd edition by Stephen Northcutt and Hackers Exposed 5th Edition. Any other advice for a noobie trying to prepare for a security position would be greatly appreciated :D
