    Comptia's Security+ page has most of the answers you're looking for.

    To be honest, it depends on your own experience & knowledge. I would recommend doing the A+ & Network+ first though, as it will help you understanding certain subjects (the A+ & Network+ starts/builds the foundation for the Security+).

    Since you have CCNA you should have pretty good understanding of network and I don't think that N+ would help (you know it already) .

    Actually, having the CCNA doesn't mean that you already know the stuff on the Network+... the Network+ is vendor-neutral, whereas the CCNA is vendor-specific.
