COBIT® 3rd Edition.©: Control Objectives for Information and related Technology

The IT Governance Institute and ISACF™ are pleased to announce COBIT® 3rd Edition.© COBIT - the breakthrough IT governance tool that helps enterprises balance risk and control investment - has been further enhanced and now includes the all-new “Management Guidelines.”

Composed of Maturity Models, Critical Success Factors, Key Goal Indicators, and Key Performance Indictors, these Management Guidelines will help answer the questions of immediate concern to all those who have a stake in the effective union between business processes and information systems. In addition, COBIT 3rd Edition consists of an Executive Summary, Framework, high-level and detailed Control Objectives, Audit Guidelines and an Implementation Tool Set. A key-word searchable CD-ROM containing all of COBIT’s text and graphics is also included.

COBIT has been developed as a generally applicable and accepted standard for good Information Technology (IT) security and control practices that provides a reference framework for management, users, and IS audit, control and security practitioners.

A successful organization is built on a solid framework of data and knowledge. The Framework further defines, in detail, the 34 high-level IT control objectives contained in the four domains. In addition, Framework identifies and specifies which of seven information criteria (effectiveness, efficiency, confidentiality, integrity, availability, compliance and reliability) are affected by each, as well as which IT resources (people, applications, technology, facilities and data) are impacted by each control objective.

The key to maintaining profitability in a technologically changing environment is how well you maintain control. COBIT's Control Objectives provides the critical insight needed to delineate a clear policy and good practice for IT controls. Included are the statements of desired results or purposes to be achieved by implementing the 318 specific, detailed control objectives throughout the 34 IT processes.

Analyze, assess, interpret, react, implement. To achieve your desired goals and objectives you must constantly and consistently audit your procedures. Audit Guidelines outlines and suggests actual activities to be performed corresponding to each of the 34 high-level IT control objectives, while substantiating the risk of control objectives not being met. Audit Guidelines is an invaluable tool for information systems auditors in providing management assurance and/or advice for improvement

An Implementation Tool Set, which contains Management Awareness and IT Control Diagnostics, and Implementation Guide, FAQs, case studies from organizations currently using COBIT, and slide presentations that can be used to introduce COBIT into organizations. The new Tool Set is designed to facilitate the implementation of COBIT, relate lessons learned from organizations that quickly and successfully applied COBIT in their work environments, and lead management to ask about each COBIT process: Is this domain important for our business objectives? Is it well performed? Who does it and who is accountable? Are the processes and control formalized?

The CD-ROM, which contains all of COBIT, is published as a Folio infobase. The material is accessed using Folio Views®, which is a high-performance, information retrieval software tool. Instant access to COBIT's text and graphics is now easier than ever with flexible keyword searching and built-in index links.

A network version (multi-user) of COBIT 3rd Edition will be available. It will be compatible with Microsoft Windows NT and Novell NetWare environments. Pricing is dependent on the number of user licenses required.
