COBIT® 2019 Foundation

The globally recognized COBIT Framework, the leader in ensuring effective and strategic enterprise governance of information and technology (EGIT), has been updated with new information and guidance—facilitating easier, tailored implementation. Effective governance over information and technology is critical to business success, and this new release further cements COBIT’s continuing role as an important driver of innovation and business transformation. COBIT 2019 is an evolution of the previous version, COBIT 5, building on its solid foundation by adding the latest developments affecting enterprise information and technology.

COBIT® provides the guidance and means to build and sustain a best-fit governance system that aligns with major related standards, frameworks, and regulations. The COBIT framework is also very relevant to the modern enterprise—bringing structure to decision-making and assisting in the creation of a more agile governance system. COBIT provides the latest thinking in Enterprise Governance of Information & Technology (EGIT) and is a comprehensive repository of guidance, tools, models, and resources to help business leaders achieve their objectives for effective I&T governance.

The COBIT Foundation Certificate Exam ensures that you understand:

  • How to align IT goals with strategic business objectives using tools designed to give governance a wider perspective and practitioners more flexibility.
  • The value derived from IT, necessary resources, and potential risks in the process of building a mature relationship between the business and IT.
  • The different types of IT governance frameworks, such as ITIL, NIST, etc., including the benefits of each and how they work.

From its foundation in the IT audit community, COBIT has developed into a broader and more comprehensive information and technology (IT) governance and management framework and continues to establish itself as a generally accepted framework for IT governance.

COBIT is a framework from ISACA for the governance and management of enterprise information and technology aimed at the whole enterprise. Enterprise IT means all the technology and information processing the enterprise puts in place to achieve its goals, regardless of where this happens in the enterprise. In other words, enterprise IT is not limited to the IT department of an organization but certainly includes it. COBIT defines the components to build and sustain a governance system: processes, organizational structures, policies and procedures, information flows, culture and behaviors, skills, and infrastructure.

    Trainer with vast experience relating to real-life scenarios helps to further explain statements. It would be good if we could have a few more participants for group discussion and brainstorming based on different industries/backgrounds/experiences to trigger a wider lens of knowledge sharing. I appreciate the trainer sharing some tactical tips to dissect a question for better understanding in relating the best answers. At my current job scope, I have rated 3 for understanding and applying because I do not have the past experience, or full skill to trigger a change at the top organization level. However I could apply to day to day job whenever applicable.
