Course Overview

It is both fashionable and desirable for a professional in the field of IT security or enterprise governance to be intimately familiar with Enterprise Governance with COBIT® 5, a comprehensive framework for governance and management of IT assets by Iasca, utilising globally accepted principles, analytical tools, models and practices.

Participants will learn to use COBIT® 5 to support governance of IT by defining and aligning business goals with IT processes and goals. This way, by a balancing act between the realisation of benefits, exposure to risks and usage of resources, the true optimal business values of IT can be obtained.
