As promised by CompTIA in 2010, the new Security+ exam (SYO-301) is now live. It has been 3 years since the Security+ exam has been updated and CompTIA is keeping with a policy of renewing exams every 3 years. The new exam has a look and feel of more real world objectives along with some content from the ISC2 CISSP exam. Listed below is the differences between the 201 objectives and the new 301 objectives.
You can still take the 201 exam through the end of 2010. If you are thinking of taking the new exam, almost 90% of the information from the 201exam is still applicable.
As of July 1, the Security+ class that I teach at Centriq Training will be using new curriculum to reflect the 2011 objectives.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
