COBIT 5 is the only business framework for the governance and management of enterprise IT. ISACA’s globally accepted framework provides the principles, practices, analytical tools and models to help increase trust in, and value from, information systems.

COBIT has a 20 years history of helping organization of all sizes and all industries use IT activity to better address stakeholders needs and goals.

The latest version of COBIT embodies thought leadership and guidance from business, IT and governance experts around the world. Additionally in response to increased necessity for cyber resilience COBIT 5 has two new levels: Implementing the NIST Standards using COBIT 5 (INCS) and COBIT Assessor for Security (AS). These levels of COBIT 5 Certification focus on the business drivers to prioritize cyber security activities and integrate cyber security with the organization’s overall risk management processes

COBIT 5 helps enterprises of all sizes, regardless of sector:

COBIT 5 Qualification Scheme
Three (3) qualifications are available in COBIT 5. These are:

1. COBIT 5 Foundation

3. COBIT 5 Assessor
In the COBIT 5 Assessor course you will master the understanding of how to perform a formal Process Capability Assessment and how it can be used to enable business goals, prioritize improvement activities and identify opportunities for improving the governance and management of IT assets.

The course provides the basis for assessing an enterprise’s process capabilities against the COBIT 5 Process Reference Model (PRM). Evidence-based to enable a reliable, consistent and repeatable way to assess IT process capabilities, this model helps IT leaders gain C-level and board member buy-in for change and improvement initiatives.

Assessment results provide a determination of process capability. They can be used for process improvement, delivering value to the business, measuring the achievement of current or projected business goals, benchmarking, consistent reporting and organizational compliance. The course is supported by practical exercises and engaging case-based scenarios.
