The Michigan Cyber-Command Center is directed by the Michigan State Police from within the stateÕs Emergency Operations Center. The cyber-command is staffed by a select group of skilled public and private professionals who are highly trained in emergency response to cyber-events. When activated after a security threat, the command is tasked with restoring computer systems and minimizing damage, as well as deploying rapid-response teams that help secure networks in addition to their aid in the development of training standards. In short, the MC3 is responsible for the coordination of combined efforts of cyber emergency response during critical cyber incidents in Michigan. Emphasis is placed upon prevention, response, and recovery from cyber incidents.
