Penn State Medical Center Leverages FireEye Integrated Solutions and Threat Intelligence

As a preeminent academic medical center, The Milton S. Hershey Medical Center is home to many top-tier academics focused on cutting-edge healthcare research. Matthew Snyder, CISO at Hershey Medical Center, observed, "A single data compromise can negate the work that a researcher has performed over a 20-to-30 year span. This is just one of a multitude of reasons why cyber security is a mission-critical imperative for us."

Multiple sources cite that the healthcare industry has experienced a triple-digit increase in the annual number of cyber-related breaches. Within one ten-month period the Hershey Medical Center identified 83 million malicious attempts to penetrate its infrastructure. Snyder described, "These were not just run-of-the-mill scanning attempts; these were attacks where someone was attempting a specific threat action."
