August Episode of Lunchtime Connections

August 23, 2018

This month’s episode of Lunchtime Connections was held on August 15 and included presentations from Corfin Industries, Wapack Labs and Trusted Internet and Pragmatic Consulting. This webinar series is an opportunity for NHADEC members to introduce themselves to one another and give each one an opportunity to talk about their business and capabilities.

Corfin Industries provides niche service to the microelectronics components market supporting mission-critical or high-rel applications, the failure of which could result in loss of life. These systems are found in the defense and aerospace, space, medical and transportation industries, among others. Most times the high-rel market buys these devices commercially, so they’re not specially designed for the stresses and demands of mission critical applications. Corfin Industries’ process is a robotic hot-solder dip that ruggedizes these commercial, off-the-shelf components, increasing their reliability and their ability to survive and perform in highly-demanding environments.

Pragmatic Consulting is a full-service consulting firm made up of highly-experienced consultants working in both management and technical disciplines for clients primarily in the United States, Europe and Asia. Pragmatic develops custom tactical plans based on their clients’ specific and unique needs, covering everything from improving on-time delivery to improving information systems to company turnarounds and more throughout the entire supply chain. Many of the company’s clients require a cross-functional set of expertise to be successful in implementing the kind of technical or culture change that is required.

Wapack Labs was founded in 2013 as an intelligence and analysis company with regards to cyber threats. From that company was born Trusted Internet under the premise that 97% of the companies that need security don’t have security. The company provides a low-cost, very effective managed security service program for small and medium sized businesses. The company has developed solutions for NIST 800-171 and ransomware issues, which are two of the most asked about issues. Because of the submarine breach in Rhode Island, by the end of 2018 every government contractor will be audited for the NIST 800-171 compliance.

Lunchtime Connections are currently being scheduled bi-monthly, opposite months including a General Member Meeting. Each member section is approximately 10 minutes long and includes a Q&A period after the formal presentation.
