Joe Coleman

Joe Coleman, cyber security officer at Bluestreak™, will deliver two technical sessions during the Furnaces North America (FNA 2022) Conference in Indianapolis on October 3-5, 2022.

THROUGHPUT I Bluestreak™ is a leader in service-based manufacturing solutions for the metals treating industry.

“With digital transformation being so critical to heat treaters and manufacturers, cyber security has also become a priority. Integrity of your systems can no longer be ignored. Failure to adopt and maintain cybersecurity best practices, including NIST 800-171 and CMMC, can mean the loss of current contracts, the ability to remain eligible for new contracts, and reimbursing the government and taxpayers for all losses incurred,” said Coleman.
