What is COBIT
Control Objectives for Information and related Technology is an internationally recognized framework for IT governance. COBIT can support the development of an internal IT control system by fulfilling external compliance requirements for IT and helps to prove these requirements continuously. By describing the control tools for the IT processes, COBIT provides templates to determine process maturity levels. The COBIT framework breaks down IT tasks into processes to support IT governance by providing a comprehensive description of the control objectives for IT processes. Appropriately defined and operated IT processes are required for processing information, managing IT resources and providing services. COBIT thus serves as a tool for closing gaps in control requirements and business risks.
