About Protiviti

Protiviti is a global consulting firm whose name is a combination of words, including "professionalism," "proactivity," "independence" and "integrity." Founded as a subsidiary of Robert Half in 2002, in the days leading up to the passage of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the firm started out with more than 700 professionals from Arthur Andersen's U.S. internal audit and business risk consulting practices. Today, with more than 4,000 professionals operating out of more than 75 offices in over 20 countries, the firm serves clients in a broad swath of industries, including consumer products/retail, energy, financial services, government, healthcare and life sciences, industrial products/manufacturing, transportation, hospitality, private equity, and technology, media and communications.

After its founding, the firm expanded at a rapid pace, growing to the globe-spanning organization it is today. Its experts, specializing in risk and advisory services, help clients by providing the necessary business process and technology skills to address challenges related to finance, technology, operations, data, analytics, governance, risk and internal audit. Protiviti's internal audit expertise spans a variety of areas, including internal audit activities on a fully outsourced basis and working with existing internal audit functions to supplement teams lacking adequate staff or skills. The firm also works with clients on IT security and privacy issues, data management and robotic process automation. 

Over the years, Protiviti has served more than 60 percent of the companies on the FORTUNE 1000® and FORTUNE Global 500®.
