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 2,300 professionals operating out of more than 70 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, operations, technology, 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.

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

Spread the Protiviti word
As one of the world's largest independent internal audit and risk consulting firms, Protiviti has a thing or two to say about its areas of expertise. The firm regularly participates in and sponsors a variety of industry conferences and tradeshows in order to share risk management strategies. The firm also hosts webinars and local events to provide insight into a variety of business issues. Protiviti's subject-matter experts frequently contribute articles to trade publications and speak at conferences, as well.

For the bookworms, Protiviti's online library provides complimentary access to its thought leadership, including survey reports, white papers, resource guides, regulatory updates, newsletters, case studies, videos, webinars and blog. Protiviti's KnowledgeLeader, a subscription-based website, offers additional tools, templates and resources, such as best practices, white papers and methodologies. 

Additionally, Protiviti has a mobile app called Protiviti Mobiliti that delivers its experts' latest perspectives and insightful thinking about governance, risk, compliance and internal audit directly to users' mobile devices. App users can also find Protiviti events and speaking engagements (some offering CPE credit) in their geographic areas through built-in location services.
