In this 3-day interactive course, participants learn about the need for an IT governance framework and how COBIT® addresses this need by providing the latest insights into enterprise-wide governance of IT. This course explains the elements and supporting materials of the COBIT® framework, using a logical and example-driven approach for anyone interested in obtaining COBIT® foundation level knowledge.
Theory into practice (TIP) is our learning approach. Our course is scenario-driven. Participants will be able to apply knowledge at Feetwalk, a fictional company that faces governance challenges that can be addressed adopting COBIT® 5.
COBIT 5 provides the next generation of ISACA’s guidance on the enterprise governance and management of IT. It builds on more than 15 years of practical usage and application of COBIT by many enterprises and users from business, IT, risk, security and assurance communities. Today, more than ever, information and related technologies need to be governed, managed and operated in a holistic manner—with a single, integrated process model that provides end-to-end coverage of the roles, responsibilities and practices required.
COBIT 5 provides a comprehensive framework that assists enterprises in achieving their objectives for the governance and management of enterprise IT. It enables IT to be governed and managed in a holistic manner for the entire enterprise, taking in both the full end-to-end business and IT functional areas of responsibility. COBIT 5 can be adopted and adapted by enterprises of all sizes and from any industry in private and public sectors.
