I'm new to this site and wanting to find the best place to start. I'm a novice and looking to build a good base of understanding security and how it works.

I would not suggest going to any of those sites except for the obvious reasons which is articles and downloads. As for WBG... the l33t h4x0r jazz ain't for me... im not a big cyber-beatnik like fyrewall over here. I would suggest learn C++, maybe get into web development, just anything to really fall back on so you won't be homeless and poor like I am. Also I would suggest you understand what stack overflows are, understand the initial concept of memory allocation, you know... how and why programs tend to muck up.
Learn about your own computer. Get snort and setup various file/sys auditing and setup policies. Don't be one of these users that go about their ways with the same defualt settings from install and on top of it all, do everything in admin or root like 99.9999% of home-users... some even running varieties of OS with a large variety of vulnerabilities due to neglect and stupidity.
