COBIT 5 Foundation

Overview 

COBIT 5 is the only business framework for the governance and management of enterprise IT. This evolutionary version incorporates the latest thinking in enterprise governance and management techniques, and provides globally accepted principles, practices, analytical tools and models to help increase the trust in, and value from, information systems.

COBIT 5 builds and expands on COBIT 4.1 by integrating other major frameworks, standards and resources, including ISACA’s Val IT and Risk IT, Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL®) and related standards from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

In Depth

COBIT 5 helps enterprises create optimal value from IT by maintaining a balance between realizing benefits and optimizing risk levels and resource use. The framework addresses both business and IT functional areas across an enterprise and considers the IT-related interests of internal and external stakeholders. Enterprises of all sizes, whether commercial, not-for- profit or in the public sector, can benefit from COBIT 5.

Based on 5 Principles

COBIT 5 is based on five key principles for governance and management of enterprise IT:

  • Principle 1: Meeting Stakeholder Needs
  • Principle 2: Covering the Enterprise End-to- End
  • Principle 3: Applying a Single, Integrated Framework
  • Principle 4: Enabling a Holistic Approach
  • Principle 5: Separating Governance From Management


Addresses 7 enablers

The COBIT 5 framework describes seven categories of enablers:

  • Principles, policies and frameworks are the vehicle to translate the desired behavior into practical guidance for day-to-day management.
  • Processes describe an organized set of practices and activities to achieve certain objectives and produce a set of outputs in support of achieving overall IT-related goals.
  • Organizational structures are the key decision-making entities in an enterprise.
  • Culture, ethics and behavior of individuals and of the enterprise are very often underestimated as a success factor in governance and management activities.
  • Information is required for keeping the organization running and well governed, but at the operational level, information is very often the key product of the enterprise itself.
  • Services, infrastructure and applications include the infrastructure, technology and applications that provide the enterprise with information technology processing and services.
  • People, skills and competencies are required for successful completion of all activities, and for making correct decisions and taking corrective actions.
