Noah is a Director in the IT Internal Audit practice of Protiviti’s New York Office. Noah focuses on leading internal audits, IT SOX compliance, and outsourced arrangements working with organizations, both domestic and international, across the technology and financial services sectors. Prior to joining Protiviti, Noah managed Service Organization Control (“SOC”) audits over processes related to financial reporting and the Trust Services Criteria.
Most recently, Noah led a global High-Tech company in the Financial Services Industry with an OCC Consent Order and multiple MRA/MRIAs in place through establishment of an Internal Audit department, codification of internal audit policies and procedures, performing IT audit risk assessments, defining IT risk/audit universe, preparing annual IT audit plans, developing work-programs and test procedures, and managing execution of multiple IT audits. Through these activities, the regulatory consent order was lifted and their internal audit department and capabilities were transformed from start-up to a well-respected part of the organization.
Noah is a thought leader in the firm for preparing organizations for SOC reports, and authored a Protiviti white paper called “On the Road to SOC 2 Readiness – What Service Organizations Need to Know”. Additionally, Noah remains well versed in the FFIEC IT examination handbooks, cybersecurity frameworks, and a variety of regulatory/external audit requirements that have implications on the IT Audit discipline.
