MiSecure Operations Center

In the 2023-24 School Aid Fund, section 97g allocated $9,000,000 to provide a statewide Security Operations Center (SOC) and Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services to ISDs, local districts and PSAs in the State of Michigan.  Funding was secured through Ingham ISD which worked with the Michigan Association of Intermediate School Administrators (MAISA) to establish this SOC.  The Michigan Education Technology Leaders (METL) had previously formed the MiSecure Cybersecurity Task Force and this team was utilized to form the new MiSecure Operations Team.

The MiSecure Operations Team is dedicated to providing advocacy and leadership around cybersecurity tools and practices for all Michigan schools.  As directed in the 97g language, MiSecure has now selected and is making available MDR software for all critical servers in every ISD, local district and PSA.
