    Preparing for the Quantum Threat to Cryptography and Cryptocurrency

    Preparing for the Quantum Threat to Cryptography and Cryptocurrency

    Cybersecurity continues to be a critical area of concern for organizations and virtually any leader you ask – board members, CIOs, CFOs, and many more. But as elevated as those risks are today, the real threat may be just around the corner, particularly concerning cryptocurrency. Crypto has been viewed as highly secure, but the rapid emergence of quantum computing, which is set to deliver practical applications and capabilities within just a few years, is changing the game.

    Protiviti recently conducted a webinar on this topic titled “Preparing for the Quantum Threat to Cryptography and Cryptocurrency.” The lead expert and host of this webinar was Protiviti Associate Director Konstantinos Karagiannis, who is head of Quantum Computing Services at Protiviti and also hosts his own podcast called “The Post-Quantum World,” available wherever you get your podcast content. Konstantinos has been helping companies with quantum computing threats and opportunities since 2012.

    In this podcast, we address some of the many questions that came in during the webinar that Konstantinos was unable to get to during the webinar itself.

    Protiviti’s webinar, “Preparing for the Quantum Threat to Cryptography and Cryptocurrency,” is available on demand at www.protiviti.com/webinars.

    Subscribe to The Post-Quantum World, hosted by Konstantinos, available on all major podcast platforms.

    It has been an active and often wild ride in the IPO market over the past year. After a slow period during the heart of the initial COVID-19 crisis, market activity has reignited at a blistering pace, driven by optimism in the global economy and the emergence of special purpose acquisition companies, or SPACs, among other factors.

    There is ample excitement right now about IPOs, but there also are areas to be mindful of and manage effectively in order to achieve a successful public offering. Patience and proper preparation are a must.

    In this podcast, Protiviti Managing Directors Susan Alexander, Brad Rachmiel, Charlie Soranno and Nick Spinks, leaders in Protiviti’s Public Company Transformation group, discuss the overall state of the market and some of the key issues and concerns for organizations to address effectively during the overall IPO process.

    Navigating the ‘New’ Environment of the Distributed Workforce

    The range of challenges and uncertainty triggered by the pandemic continue to rise, but one key element has elevated as imminent - the future work environment.

    Do you know where all your employees are working? Which policy exceptions and accommodations do you need to amend or revise once your firm adopts a new, more permanent operating model? Are your systems able to provide proper oversight?

    This podcast features an informative discussion with Scott Anderson, Chief Compliance Officer with Société Générale, and Managing Directors Sean Gleason and Doug Wilbert from Protiviti. As part of their conversation, they assess the impact of the distributed work environment on the effectiveness of traditional compliance and oversight tools.

    The Next-Generation Internal Audit Journey Needs to Begin Now

    The Next-Generation Internal Audit Journey Needs to Begin Now

    A global pandemic caused by a rare airborne virus that continues to affect organizations in different ways around the world. A growing number of stakeholders in organizations with whom internal audit needs to partner. Business models and a risk landscape with seemingly shorter cycle times than in years past.

    These challenges are among many facing Chief Audit executives and their teams. They underscore the need to adopt next-generation internal audit practices to be more agile and technology-enabled, to have the required skill sets in alignment with these practices, and to achieve a real-time level of engagement with risk management, data and controls. But for most, the next-generation audit journey is just beginning. In fact, the results from Protiviti’s 2021 Next-Generation Internal Audit Survey reveal relatively low maturity levels in different areas of governance, methodology and enabling technology.

    The results of this survey are detailed in Protiviti’s report, The Next Generation Internal Audit Journey Needs To Begin Now. This is available at Protiviti.com/IASurvey.

    In this podcast, Protiviti’s Liz Berger and Andrew Struthers-Kennedy share their insights and notable takeaways from the study. Liz is a director with Protiviti’s Internal Audit and Financial Advisory practice, while Andrew is a managing director and global leader for Protiviti’s IT Audit practice.
