The proposed development of the next version of ISACA’s enterprise governance of IT framework—COBIT 5—is described in this exposure draft. It outlines the proposed approach to COBIT 5 and includes a high-level description of the main development objectives and improvements, as well as a short description of the background and assumptions regarding stakeholder requirements.
COBIT 5 will be a major strategic improvement providing the next generation of ISACA’s guidance on the enterprise governance of IT. Building on the more than 15 years of practical usage and application of COBIT by many enterprises and users from the business, IT, security and assurance communities, COBIT 5 will be designed to meet the current needs of stakeholders and align with the most up-to-date thinking in enterprise governance and IT management techniques.
COBIT 5 will consolidate and integrate the COBIT 4.1, Val IT 2.0 and Risk IT frameworks and also draw significantly from the Business Model for Information Security (BMIS) and ITAF.
The primary objective of this initial exposure is to obtain your input and comment regarding our assumption of requirements, the proposed strategic approach and the high-level design. An online questionnaire is provided to capture specific feedback on certain aspects of the paper, as well as any other comments you may want to provide on the document.
ISACA will not approve any language translations of the COBIT 5 Design exposure draft. Once COBIT 5 is issued, ISACA will be happy to license it for language translation.
