Course Information

COBIT Foundation Overview

Control Objectives for Information and Related Technology (COBIT®) is a globally recognised IT control and governance framework, which sets out a series of generic processes for Enterprise Leaders, Managers, and IT Professionals. It allows for effective management of Information Systems and ensures that businesses are maximising the value of their Information Systems.


The COBIT® 5 framework is the latest version of COBIT®. It is a recognised and effective IT framework, which involves the control and governance of Information Systems, and sets out a series of generic proven processes. COBIT® 5 can be used by enterprises of any size and from any sector to manage their Information Systems and get the best out of them. The COBIT® 5 framework is proven to work for any business because it allows businesses to sustain an equilibrium between realising benefits and optimising risk levels and resource utilisation.


The COBIT® framework has been successfully implemented by organisations such as Oracle, Maitland Group, Unisys, and GlaxoSmithKline. The use of this IT framework by Maitland has shown that many of the principles of COBIT® that have been specifically designed to aid IT, can in fact, be used across the entirety of the enterprise. Thus, employing COBIT® 5 certified individuals may prove highly valuable to the entire business.


This new version provides a wealth of tools, resources, and guidance for Enterprise Leaders, Managers, and IT Professionals, enabling them to govern and manage enterprise IT, and subsequently, produce outstanding business optimisation. Enterprises can benefit substantially from implementing this framework, as it allows them to merge business and IT, ameliorate risk management, and strengthen cybersecurity.
