Context Diagram

COBIT is a comprehensive framework that covers Governance , Plan, Build, Run stages of  IT.  COBIT is set of control objectives that can be audited. COBIT does not specify any implementation guidelines, practices or tools. The organisations often chose a lower level framework to implement COBIT’s control objectives.

Summary Ratings

COBIT is first released in 19961 and celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2016. COBIT has been periodically updated by the sponsoring organisation ISACA.2.  It is one of the widely adopted framework for organisations pursuing IT Governance. The rating 4 given is because there is no legislative or regulatory requirements in Australia to enforce COBIT in Government or financial sector.

COBIT is tool agnostic. However, without underpinning tools organisations cannot meet the control objectives of COBIT.

ISACA provides extensive training support and assessment support for COBIT.
