It helps the modern technology professionals deliver true value by realizing maximum benefits while optimizing risk and costs to the business.

COBIT 2019 helps enterprises maximize the value of their technology investments. Throughout its history, COBIT has been used by enterprises around the world to significantly and sustainably improve the management of enterprise IT and governance.  In the age of technology-enabled business strategies, the COBIT 2019 framework has emerged as an indispensable framework.

COBIT 2019 builds on the popular COBIT5 framework which provides globally accepted principles, practices, analytical tools and models designed to help business and IT leaders maximize trust in, and value from, their enterprise’s information and technology assets. COBIT 2019 continues to integrate existing ISACA risk and value management frameworks into an established governance framework provided for in earlier versions of COBIT.

COBIT 2019 provides upgraded guidance to executives and those charged with making decisions concerning the use of technology in support of organizational objectives.
