HOUSTON, Dec. 13, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Covisint, a Compuware (Nasdaq:CPWR) company, will participate on an oil and gas industry panel in Houston on Friday December 14, 2012, to help energy companies
accelerate and manage joint ventures. Thought leaders from Gartner and a major energy company will also join Covisint's Chief Security Officer, Dave Miller, discussing how security breaches and the proliferation of mobile devices demand dramatic changes from the oil and gas industry that employs three-fourths of its workforce from joint venture partnerships.
Kevin Kampman, a featured speaker on the panel who specializes in identity management, security, risk and privacy, will discuss how energy companies can most effectively leverage technology internally and externally to overcome these key challenges. And an information risk architect from a major energy company will discuss how it successfully addresses the real-world challenges of joint venture collaboration. Covisint's Miller will show how to engage securely in the cloud to turn IT security challenges into competitive advantages for joint ventures.
This event promises to be a lively and interactive panel discussion with a Q&A portion for participants to directly address the experts with their real-world joint venture challenges. Topics around securing and managing external identities for the energy industry will include:
implementing more effective communication and collaboration techniques;
claims-based authentication for higher levels of security; and,
industry trends, recommendations, next-steps bringing immediate and lasting value.
"The global energy industry has incredible amounts of joint venture activities requiring secure collaboration across different technologies, organizations and individuals," said David Miller, Covisint Chief Security Officer. "Covisint's secure cloud engagement platform helps accelerate the time-to-first-oil that's so desired by these companies, and this Houston event will give participants the kind of real-world, actionable information they need to excel where others have failed."
