Podcast | Get Ready for Your IPO: Financial Reporting, Cybersecurity, Sustainability and More – with Stephen Alicanti, Kristy Balsanek, Charles Soranno and Andrea Vardaro Thomas

In this episode of Powerful Insights, we talk about all things around readiness for an initial public offering, or IPO. And spoiler alert, there is a lot to address: accounting, financial reporting, cybersecurity, and even ESG and climate reporting.
August in Vegas brings intense (but dry) heat and the annual Summer Hacker Camp of events. Arguably, the most fun and intriguing of the bunch is DEF CON (August 8-11, 2024), the world’s leading hacking conference, 32 years strong. The show features the third year of the Quantum Village. And for the second year in a row, host Konstantinos Karagiannis will be speaking. Join him for a chat with Mark Carney and Victoria…

Error correction typically involves a lot of physical qubits and using them to create one logical qubit. Ratios vary by modality and approach, so getting a single fault-tolerant qubit may take seven to a thousand physical ones. What if there was a way to correct most of the errors that appear on each qubit instead? Scaling up from there would certainly be much easier, getting us to machines that can reliably solve…
When Richard Feynman proposed the idea of a quantum simulator or computer in 1981, he was frustrated by the limitations of classical systems. He logically suggested that if we live in a quantum world, we need a quantum device to simulate all the interactions of particles that make up reality. An excellent example of such a transistor-choking calculation is the quantum many-body problem. Have quantum computers…
Supply chain management continues to be a hot topic in countless organisations in light of ongoing geopolitical challenges, evolving impacts of climate change, new tariffs, changing labor markets, and much more. How can supply chain and procurement leaders attack these and other challenges? It starts with building and implementing a strategic sourcing strategy.  Protiviti recently published a whitepaper, Strategic…
In September 2023, California legislators passed the first mandatory climate disclosure bills in the United States. Governor Gavin Newsom signed the two climate-impact reporting measures into law on October 7, 2023. The measures are expected to have far-reaching effects not only for the U.S.-based businesses that are required to comply but also for their trading partners around the world.In this episode of Board…
In this special edition of Protiviti Legal Perspectives, our panelists—Jamy J. Sullivan, JD, Executive Director of Robert Half Legal Talent Solutions; Nicholas You, Associate Director of Legal Consulting at Protiviti; and Mark Carson, Managing Director at Protiviti—join Protiviti podcast host Chad Volkert to delve into the most pressing legal risks for in-house legal departments. This discussion is a recording of a…
Large Language Models are … large. Forget Bitcoin and recharging electric vehicles; the grid could be toppled by powering AI in a few years. It would be optimal if AI could run on more underpowered edge devices. What if there was a quantum-inspired way to make LLMs smaller without sacrificing overall performance in combined metrics? We explore a way to do that and other advanced ideas like selectively removing…
The phrase “quantum internet” gets tossed around a lot, usually as a placeholder for something that will fix many nonspecific issues in the future. The core concept of quantum networking is a real thing, though, and is more robust today than you might think. How does it work? How fast is it? And is it really running in the Big Apple? Join Host Konstantinos Karagiannis for a chat with Noel Goddard from Qunnect as…
Is post-quantum cryptography safe from quantum computing? Do we really need thousands of qubits to attack RSA? We examine some of the challenges to PQC strength and timeline that have recently emerged in scientific papers and consider what makes peer review such a crucial part of the process. Join Host Konstantinos Karagiannis for a chat about the actual state of PQC and how it will affect your organisation.Papers…
