Have you ever wondered which country has the highest concentration of CISSPs?

We know. It’s a question that has kept us up at night as well. Thankfully, (ISC)2 provides member counts bi-annually, broken down by country and certification. So we now have the answer (based on June 2018 statistics from CISSP).

The highest concentrations of CISSP certification holders in the world are in Singapore, United States, Cayman Islands, and Bermuda.

Here’s the full list of the number of CISSPs by country per 100,000 people. Enjoy.
