COBIT Security Auditing with SVT
What is COBIT and who does it apply to?
The Control Objectives for Information and related Technology (COBIT) is a set of best practices (framework) for information technology (IT) management, and was created by the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA), and the IT Governance Institute (ITGI). COBIT is not a regulation or compliance requirement like HIPAA or PCI DSS. Instead it provides managers, auditors, and IT users with a set of generally accepted measures, indicators, processes and best practices.
How does this affect your enterprise?
COBIT 4.1 has 34 high-level processes that cover 210 control objectives categorized in 4 domains: Planning and Organization, Acquisition and Implementation, Delivery and Support, and Monitoring and Evaluation. COBIT provides benefits to managers, IT users, and auditors. One of the main benefits of COBIT is that it provides a foundation upon which IT-related decisions and investments can be based. Decisions are more effective because COBIT helps define a strategic IT plan, specific controls, and IT structure.
How SVT can help you!
