Globe Newswire

HOUSTON, Sept. 9, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As the energy industry faces increasing globalization, digitization and regulatory complexity, oil and gas companies have much to gain from standardizing communication and data exchange across their vast ecosystems of third-party collaborators. To highlight the value of applying standards, supply chain and security best practices, David Miller, chief security officer at Covisint Corporation (Nasdaq:COVS), will speak on a panel, "The Value of Standards in Oil & Gas and other Industries" at the Petroleum Industry Data Exchange (PIDX) International US Fall Conference 2014.

The conference, taking place September 11-12, 2014 at the Baker Hughes Auditorium in Houston, Texas, convenes energy executives and managers from across IT, supply chain, accounting, marketing and other departments to discuss how standards accelerate the realization of value in oil and gas operations. For the petroleum industry in particular, B2B communication and data standards are key to connecting disparate refiners, suppliers, distributors, marketers and others while isolating and securing sensitive data and specific patented processes.

During the panel, Miller will demonstrate how successful data standardization initiatives from other industries can be applied to the oil and gas industry. With more than 20 years of information security and identity management experience, Miller is uniquely positioned to share best practices that meet these mission-critical business needs.
