Information Management and Technology Committee (IMTC)

The IMTC serves as a forum for the oil and natural gas industry to address issues in systems technology, including computers, communications, and electronic commerce. Key issues that the IMTC addresses include risk management, network security, critical infrastructure protection, information privacy, technological change, and knowledge management. The IMTC periodically conducts various studies and projects designed to investigate technological innovations, undertake benchmarking studies of interest to the industry, or establish inter or intra-industry groups to promote developments of interest.  For more information:

Information Technology Security Subcommittee (ITSS)
The API ITSS provides an opportunity to work together more proactively to address areas of common interest to the petroleum industry and to demonstrate that the industry is taking prudent steps to protect our cyber infrastructure. Cyber security is an increasingly important consideration in protection of the nation's critical infrastructure. IT systems and applications – whether operating an E-commerce web application or operating a mission critical system to companies' business models - need to be adequately protected.
