CompTIA Security+
SY0-501 or SY0-601?

The Security+ 501 exam retires on July 31, 2021, the 601 is new and includes the technology advancements over the past 4 years.

My Recommendations

If you are new to Security+, without a doubt, start studying the SY0-601. It has all the up-to-date technologies and will support your career for longer.

If you have recently invested in the SY0-501, but not progressed far, it might be that you have been poorly advised and might consider changing to the SY0-601. The launch date for the  SY0-601 was November 12, 2020, but this was announced at least 6 months prior to that date.

If you have attended training for the SY0-501 and made good progress towards being exam ready, hurry up! Sorry, to not have more positive advice. The Security+ 501 exam retires on July 31, 2021. If you do not pass by that date, you will need to invest time and money again to achieve Security+ status through the 601 path.
