    Hi All

    Just a quick note to say that anyone studying for the CompTIA Security+ (SY0-501) , this is being retired on the 31st of July 2021. Ideally you should be looking at the SY0-601.

    I still think this was one of my most enjoyable certs that I sat, wow, maybe 2009! Man I'm old. Is anyone studying for this right now? I think it's still well regarded in the right circles

    Thanks
    James

    That’s great to hear. Still rock solid foundations in things that many of us take for granted I’d say. Why figure out a training plan. Just send them on those
