(ISC)2 certification counts – how many CSSLP are out there?
(ISC)2 maintains this page https://www.isc2.org/member-counts.aspx# with the counts of all certifications per country. I wrote before about this here https://www.sorinmustaca.com/how-many-certified-secure-software-lifecycle-professionals-are-out-there/, but this was back in 2013 (1.5 years after I became certified) ! Some statistics: As of September 25 2013: 1168 CSSLP Romania 1 Germany 19 As of May 23 2022: 3008 CSSLP Romania 6 Germany 48 Mexico 8 If these numbers appear big… look at the count of CISSP (without specializations): 152.623 as of today. So, yes, you can see how hard is to get this certification. This year I celebrate 10 years of being a CSSLP!
