Today, cybersecurity threats are emerging with increasing frequency. In addition to network intrusions, various other types of attacks, such as advanced persistent threats, are launched by malicious parties every day. Software threats and vulnerabilities have grave security implications for individuals as well as organizations. For example, developers inadvertently leave loopholes in source code that become a secret channel and vulnerability for the intruders when developing a software application. Earning CSSLP certification will ensure software developers possess the most current knowledge of keeping their software safe.

The CSSLP is ideal for software development and security professionals responsible for applying best practices to each phase of the software development lifecycle (SDLC). It shows you have advanced knowledge and the technical skills to effectively design, develop, and implement security practices within each software lifecycle phase.

To become a fully certified CSSLP, (ISC)² requires the candidate to have a minimum of four years cumulative paid full-time SDLC experience in one or more of the eight domains of the CSSLP credential. A candidate can substitute one year of experience for a four-year college degree. Suppose a candidate passes the certification exam but does not possess the required years of experience. In that case, they will become an associate of (ISC)² and have five years to earn the experience. At which time they will become a fully certified CSSLP.

CSSLPs can also expect good pay and opportunities for the foreseeable future. According to PayScale, the salary for a CSSLP is about $108,366 per year. A senior security software engineer that has a role in designing and building secure IT systems can exceed $126,463. Salaries, however, vary according to job title, location, and experience.
