When is the New Security+ SY0-501 release date?

It’s bit early to guess about new CompTIA Security+ SY0-501 exam but by taking an educated guess into consideration we are here with some useful information which is as under:

The existing Security+ SY0-401 exam was released in May 2014 and will expire in July 2018. And according to CompTIA’s renewal schedule, it renews all its major certifications after every three years (which includes Security + SY0-401 certification also). It seems likely that new release update of Security+ SY0-401 will be in the summer/fall of the year 2017. The old Security+ SY0-301 exam was retired on December 31, 2014, and then CompTIA had an overlap period of several months in which it allowed candidates to choose between SY0-301 and SY0-401. Similarly, if the Security+ SY0-501 exam goes live in October 2017, candidates will probably be able to still take the current Security+ SY0-401 exam until July 2018. On the basis of latest updates up till now, the CompTIA Security+ SY0-501 exam will be launched on 4th October 2017.

Security+ Exam Details
