Valuing Customers, Earning Trust, and Building Strong Relationships
At Micron, we realize that addressing the challenges of today’s digital landscape requires steadfast commitment to protecting the trust relationship we have with our customers.
We embrace the unpredictability and constant threat to cybersecurity by leveraging the industry standard NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Cybersecurity Framework; ensuring our workforce is trained and ready for any kind of disruption.
We provide transparency about our privacy practices and ensure our customers understand the choices they have regarding their privacy rights and Personal Information. See the Micron Privacy Notice for more information.
Our global cybersecurity organization initiated its response plan as soon as the industry-wide open-source Apache Log4j2 vulnerability was made public and immediately began assessing our environment to determine actual risk. We have taken additional measures to ensure that our systems and customer information are protected from this vulnerability, and we continue to diligently monitor, assess and enhance our measures over time.
At Micron, cybersecurity is structured based on the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework, using it as a capability guide to appropriately staff functional categories for appropriate responses. Reviews of process, procedures, and capabilities are performed on an ongoing basis and incorporate elements of relevant cases.
Micron is committed to ensuring the efficient flow of cargo by enhancing the integrity and security of Micron goods while in the global supply chain. To demonstrate this commitment, Micron holds certifications in C-TPAT (United States, Tier III) and the AEO (Japan, Taiwan, and China). Micron also works with distribution partners to implement international standards, such as TAPA, at warehousing operations.

As part of our integrated Quality Management System (QMS), we promote risk-based thinking throughout our QMS. Team members are trained and guided in risk management concepts and execution to ensure that the needs and expectations of Micron’s interested parties are protected from risk at all levels of the organization. Risk-based thinking ensures that we consider risk and opportunity in a holistic manner, at all levels of our organization, and on a continual basis, to ensure the continuing suitability of our QMS to deliver its intended results.
Micron’s QMS is certified to:
