Cyber Disruption Response Plan (CDRP)

The Michigan Cyber Disruption Response Plan (CDRP) was created to protect the health, safety, and economic interests of Michigan's residents and businesses by reducing the impacts of disruptive cyber related events through response and mitigation planning, awareness, and implementation. The CDRP was created in 2015 through collaboration by state and local governments and public and private partners. As threats have continued to grow and evolve, the CDRP was updated to address the changing environment, allowing for a more rapid and flexible response between public and private partners to minimize the impact of cyber disruption events in Michigan.

The CDRP provides a common framework for identifying and responding to technological threats by defining five threat levels that mirror the federal government model. The plan enables closely integrated coordination and leverages technical training for core team members, planned and executed tabletop exercises, and uses risk-based metrics to identify, implement, and track continuous improvement.

The CDRP involves several areas, including the Michigan Department of Technology, Management & Budget (DTMB), the Michigan National Guard (MING), the Michigan State Police (MSP), Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division (EMHSD), and the MSP Intelligence Operations Division (IOD). Activities conducted to the CDRP work within state and local planning and incident command structures, complement existing plans and procedures, and are compliant with the National Incident Management System (NIMS).
