COBIT stands for Control Objectives for Information and Related Technology. It is a framework created by the ISACA (Information Systems Audit and Control Association) for IT governance and management. It was designed to be a supportive tool for managers—and allows bridging the crucial gap between technical issues, business risks, and control requirements. COBIT is a thoroughly recognized guideline that can be applied to any organization in any industry. Overall, COBIT ensures quality, control, and reliability of information systems in an organization, which is also the most important aspect of every modern business.
Today, COBIT is used globally by all IT business process managers to equip them with a model to deliver value to the organization, and practice better risk management practices associated with the IT processes. The COBIT control model guarantees the integrity of the information system.
