Symmetree offers three COBIT version 4.1 courses developed in conjunction with the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA). The COBIT Awareness, COBIT Foundation and COBIT for Sabanes-Oxley IT Compliance are self paced eLearning courses that offer authentic, interactive and user friendly delivery of COBIT training programs for various student levels.
The COBIT Awareness course is an introductory course that outlines the need for an IT control framework and explains COBIT and addresses this in relation to other frameworks. In the
two hours it takes to undertake the course you will learn about IT governance issues affecting organisations globally and the need for a proper control framework. COBIT is introduced and explained at a high level as the best practice model for IT governance. You will learn about the components of the model and the relationship with other frameworks such as ITIL and COSO.
The COBIT Foundation course addresses the need for an IT control framework and explains how this is addressed by COBIT. The elements of the COBIT framework are explained using practical examples and scenario based learning.
Through a case study driven approach you will learn about the components comprising the COBIT model, and how this is applied in practice using interactive scenario's and real world examples.
The course prepares you for the official COBIT Foundation Exam organised under the umbrella of
COBIT stands for Control Objectives for Information and related Technology. It is a governance and control
framework with guidance that focuses on “What needs to be achieved” rather than “How to achieve.”
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.
COBIT, issued by the IT Governance Institute and now in its third edition, is increasingly internationally accepted
as good practice for control over information, IT and related risks. Its guidance enables an enterprise to
implement effective governance over the IT that is pervasive and intrinsic throughout the enterprise.
