SEC501 or 504?
I'm a newbie to cybersecurity and am currently getting my butt kicked by SEC401. I'm planning my next step and would like to know which I should take first: SEC501 or 504? Everyone seems to love 504, but 501 has wider topics and discusses intrusion detection and malware analysis. I'd eventually like to get into CTI hence my interest in getting broad knowledge.

If you look at the training roadmap. I would say that SANS 504 is the best choice. SEC 501 seem to be a class with a bit of everything but nothing in particular. It look like a class that was built for a specific customer in mind. I mean, it look like they were asked 1 week custom training as as baseline for a big customer with a bit of everything.
Finally, if you do the associated exam GCIH is much more recognized than GCED.
