 Learning Objectives

About this seminar:

COBIT 5 is a major strategic improvement which provides the next generation of ISACA guidance on the governance and management of enterprise information and technology (IT) assets.

Building on more than 15 years of practical application, ISACA designed COBIT 5 to meet the needs of stakeholders, and to align with current thinking on enterprise governance and management techniques as they relate to Information and related Technology.

COBIT 5 integrates all existing related ISACA guidance (COBIT 4.1, Val IT, Risk IT, BMIS) and aligns with the latest relevant other standards and frameworks, and thus provides the unique overarching framework.

This seminar will help you to:

  • Understand the latest thinking on Governance and Management of enterprise IT and the difference between both
  • Understand that COBIT 5 is intended for and should be used by business and IT users - COBIT 5 is not an IT framework !
