Organisations are under increasing pressure to deliver value and manage risk. Effective IT governance, which includes implementing processes and organisational structures, is clearly required to ensure IT supports the organisation's overall strategy and objectives.
COBIT®5 was launched in 2012 and provides a globally accepted framework for businesses to govern and manage enterprise IT. The primary focus of the framework is to maximize the value of information by aligning business and IT strategies. COBIT 5 incorporates the most up to date techniques for governance and management by bringing together COBIT 4.1, Val IT and Risk IT into one single framework. The COBIT®5 Foundation course has been developed to allow anyone with an interest in governance to explore the key elements and principles of the framework.
