CompTIA Releases New Security+ Exam

CompTIA Security+ is one of the top IT certifications nationwide. It demonstrates that you have the real-world security skills employers need to confront an ever-growing number of security threats.

CompTIA refreshes its exams every few years to ensure that credential holders have the most up-to-date and in-demand skills. The new Security+ SY0-601 exam launched on November 12. 

What Is On the New Security+ Exam?

According to CompTIA, the new exam covers five domains:

  1. Attacks, Threats and Vulnerabilities (24%)
  2. Architecture and Design (21%)
  3. Implementation (25%)
  4. Operations and Incident Response (16%)
  5. Governance, Risk and Compliance (14%)

If you've been studying for the old SY0-501, don't worry. You can still take the Security+  SY0-501 exam until July 31, 2021.
