COBIT 5 - Evolution or Revolution, by Mr. Robert Stroud

Objective: The Control Objectives for Information and Related Technology (COBIT) is a set of best practices (framework) for information technology (IT) management, created by the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (now know as simply "ISACA") and the IT Governance Institute (ITGI) in 1996. ISACA is close to completion of the COBIT 5 framework to ensure that IT effectively leverages and delivers IT enabled business value. The COBIT 5 framework leverages proven ISACA IP including COBIT, Val IT and Risk IT for a detailed framework for the effective governance and management of IT enabled business. While COBIT ensures that IT is working as effectively as possible to maximize the benefits of technology investment, Val IT helps enterprises make better decisions about where to invest, ensuring that the investment is consistent with the business strategy. And while COBIT provides a set of controls to mitigate IT risk in IT processes, Risk IT provides a framework for enterprises to identify, govern and manage IT-related risks.

What you get: This workshop will provide the delegate with an detailed overview of the proposed COBIT 5 publication, differences from COBIT 4.1, tips and techniques on leveraging the publication, information on the Process Assessment Model and guidance on how to leverage the publications to ensure value from your business driven IT initiatives.
