Michigan Information Sharing and Analysis CenterThe Michigan Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MI-ISAC) has been established to address the State of Michigan's cyber security readiness and critical infrastructure coordination. This initiative is led by the Michigan Department of Information Technology's Office of Enterprise Security.
The mission of the MI-ISAC, consistent with the objectives of the National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace, is to provide a common mechanism for raising the level of cyber security readiness and response within the State of Michigan. The MI-ISAC provides a central resource for gathering information on cyber threats to critical infrastructure throughout the State and providing two-way sharing of information between and among state and local governments, educational institutions and emergency management entities.
Regardless of location, population or size, all entities face similar cyber security threats. These threats include identity theft, worms and viruses, loss of sensitive information, and other malicious activity. The vast amounts of information on cyber security can be overwhelming and the MI-ISAC will serve as a resource to assist in addressing the issues.
The MI-ISAC is a joint effort between Michigan and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC). The MS-ISAC is a voluntary and collaborative organization comprising all 50 States and the District of Columbia focused on raising the cyber security readiness and response in each state.
The MI-ISAC will provide the following benefits to members:
- direct access to cyber security threat information from the State
- access to security awareness materials, including computer-based training modules
- access to security policy templates
- access to security-related solutions at enterprise price points negotiated by the State
- periodic meetings, teleconferences and webcasts to promote peer networking and information sharing
The efforts of this initiative will require tremendous cooperation and input from a variety of entities. This initiative is focusing on building strong relationships between and among the public (federal, state, and local) and the private sectors to best ensure our cyber readiness.
Through guiding principles of coordination, collaboration and cooperation, MI-ISAC intends to be a hub for sharing knowledge, methods and solutions.
Membership in the MI-ISAC is open to state and local governments, and public universities. Use the Contact Us link to request access to MI-ISAC. You must provide your Name, a Business phone number and a govement e-mail address to be invited to joint MI-ISAC.
