COBIT is an IT management framework developed by the ISACA global benchmarking association to help develop, organize and implement strategies around information management and governance. It allows enterprises to align existing controls with a variety of other standards and regulatory compliance requirements.
COBIT 5 is used globally by those who have the primary responsibility for business processes
and technology, and for providing quality, reliability and control of information and related technology (IT).
COBIT 5 is based on five principles that are essential for the effective management and governance of enterprise IT. Combined, these principles enable organizations to build holistic frameworks.
Meeting stakeholder needs
Covering user enterprises from end to end
Applying a single integrated framework
Enabling a holistic approach
Separating governance from management
COBIT 5 lists seven ‘enablers’ to help implement these principles: People, policies and frameworks; Processes; Organizational structures; Culture, ethics and behavior; Information; Services, infrastructure and applications; People, skills and competencies.
