Case Studies

Situation: A national insurer discovered multiple vulnerabilities in its approach to third-party security risk management. The company lacked the maturing identity access and governance (IAG) processes and technology they needed to bring it into compliance with state cyber and privacy regulations in a highly complex environment.

Value: With Protiviti's guidance, a comprehensive third-party security risk management programme was quickly adopted, reducing risk. Hundreds of on-site vendor security assessments were delivered and NYDFS and CCPA compliance was met.

Situation: The information security team for a Global 100 financial services firm needed help with their vendor risk assessments across many different service types. The company also had a backlog of more than 40 assessments that a prior partner had been unable to perform.

Value: ​Protiviti completed the unfinished risk assessments, and drove consistency, integrity, and data normalisation in vendor risk management processes.

Situation: A global technology company needed an experienced and trusted outside resource to provide user-support managed services for its IT engineering department.

Value: By running the client's engineering operations 24/7, with improved support year over year, Protiviti drove down costs and increased the client's throughput. The client gained line-of-sight recommendations for improving its engineering operations.

Situation: The country’s largest golf course management firm had recently transitioned from Oracle EBS to Oracle Cloud and struggled with project management, security, and internal workflow capabilities.

Value: Using Protiviti’s custom roles approach, the client was able to better comprehend what access would be granted when assigning roles to users. They also greatly decreased the risk posed by segregation of duties and sensitive access. HCM implementation was more efficient and effective and the company replaced manual approvals with more efficient and accurate workflow actions.
