CISSP Certified Salaries

A major benefit of becoming certified as a CISSP is the salary. Most certified CISSPs receive higher salaries, on a global average, than non-certified information security professionals.

Worldwide, the average salary of a certified CISSP is around $110,000 a year. Compare that to the average salary of a non-certified professional, which is about $99,000 a year. Being CISSP certified certainly pays off, in some documented cases of up to 25% higher, globally, than non-certified professionals. One can clearly see the monetary value in acquiring the necessary experience and taking the CISSP certification exam.*
