COBIT 4.1 Released. A powerful and user-friendly IT Governance Framework

May 24, 2007 • Top Stories

The IT Governance Institute (ITGI) has released an incremental update of the COBIT IT Governance Framework.

The enhancements to COBIT 4.1 should be welcomed as a fine tuning ofthe COBIT framework, contributing to making the understanding of vague concepts such as IT alignment, and value-add easier to understand and implement.

The changes introduced with COBIT 4.1 mainly include streamlined control objectives, streamlined application controls, improved process controls, and an enhanced explanation of performance measurement.

The updates to the COBIT Toolset include the release of an IT Governance Implementation Guide, IT Assurance Guide, and COBIT
Control practices. These publications are complimentary to the COBIT 4.1 framework, and provide valuable insight to IT management and audit professionals on how to implement IT Governance, how to test the adequacy of IT control, as well as how to implement the IT controls says Botha, MD of Aanalytix.

Analytix have reworked its COBIT training course to include the updated features of the latest version of COBIT. Our practical 2-day hands-on COBIT 4.1 training workshop is designed for IT
professionals, IT Auditors and Management that deal with the complexities of IT Management and control functions on a daily basis.

The objective is to provide attendees with the necessary perspective, knowledge and skills to understand the risks and benefits of IT. In addition delegates will learn how to use COBIT 4.1 in understanding the requirements needed to design and implement appropriate IT controls, i.e. policies, procedures, practices, and the allocation of responsibility and accountability that are required to establish the right levels of IT Governance for their organisations.

Our next Cobit course is scheduled for 28 and 29 June 2007.
Booking is essential.
