MIC Cyber Assurance Seal

Data breaches can cripple your organization–and your reputation–if you’re not proactive about information protection and risk management. In a business landscape where cybersecurity threats are imminent, anticipation is the best preparation.

The MIC Cyber Assurance Seal is an exclusive, no cost offering for MIC Resident and Affiliate Members. Certified by the Maryland Cyber Advisory Council, a world-class advisory body of chief information security officers (CISOs) from leading companies across the Mid-Atlantic, our cyber mitigation program helps your company protect its information security assets. Eliminating the need for entrepreneurs to deploy security and risk management programs individually, this program provides the cybersecurity protection and compliance assurances that your company needs.

The Issue

The Cyber Assurance Seal is critical for your business. Here’s why:

  • Your customers, partners, investors, underwriters, regulators, and third parties require a minimum of protection to transact business.
  • The decisions that your customers, trading partners, and suppliers make carry risk and impact others.
  • Seal completion helps you answer core IT operational and governance questions.
  • Seal completion fulfills requirements for cyber liability insurance coverage.

The Solution

Designed to demonstrate to third-parties that your cyber assets are fortified and risk has been managed, the Cyber Assurance Seal offers three tiers of certification.
