Throughput Consulting Inc. (Delafield, Wis.) has hired Joe Coleman as its new cyber security officer to assist customers and vendors in achieving compliance with DFARS, NIST 800-171 and CMMC.

In his most recent role as the lead manufacturing engineer at GE Aviation and its Additive Technology Center (ATC), Coleman played an integral part on the ATC setup, configuration and implementation team for Throughput division Bluestreak's additive manufacturing software, Bright AM. He was also responsible for training, mentoring and managing over 130 Bright AM system users while maintaining over 6,000 active production work orders, many of which included outside vendor processing services such as heat treating and surface finishing.

“We’re very excited to have Joe on board,” says Todd Wenzel, CEO of Throughput Consulting. “His depth of additive manufacturing experience, combined with his expansive knowledge of our MES/QMS software, will complement our training team — especially for those customers transitioning from prototype to full AM mass production.”

Along with training and mentoring new customers, Joe is working with the Bluestreak team towards achieving DFARS, NIST 800-171 and CMMC compliance and certification. The DFARS (Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement) certification requires compliance with NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) SP (special publication) 800-171 security controls, and supports CMMC, which is the U.S. Department of Defense's Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification for supply chain participation in DoD contracts.
