COBIT® 2019 Foundation Training Course – offered by ISACA

COBIT® 2019 Foundation Training Course + Online Exam Voucher

Over the years, best-practice frameworks have been developed and promoted to assist in the process of understanding, designing and implementing enterprise governance of IT (EGIT). COBIT 2019 builds on and integrates more than 25 years of development in this field, not only incorporating new insights from science, but also operationalizing these insights as practice.

COBIT is a framework for the governance and management of enterprise Information and Technology that supports enterprise goal achievement. This Foundation course is intended for new users to COBIT who are interested in achieving the foundation certificate. This two day foundation course highlights the concepts, models and key definitions of the COBIT framework

It targets all professionals in the areas of information systems who perform functions in the domains of governance and management of information systems, whether external service providers or elements of functional areas in organizations.

Given its holistic scope, training can still be a valuable resource for business areas that are heavily involved in technology, or any area of the company that wants to understand how it can use the technologies to deliver value to stakeholders.
