Pink Elephant Announces Worldwide Delivery of COBIT Foundations CourseForeign companies affected by Sarbanes-Oxley Act can benefit from auditor-designed COBIT framework.
COBIT (Control Objectives for Information and Related Technology) is complementary to ITIL (IT Infrastructure Library) for managing IT services, and is an especially practical framework for U.S.-listed foreign issuers who are subject to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX).
The in-class, instructor-led course format supports the intensive course content, which covers:
The Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA), which created COBIT along with the IT Governance Institute (ITGI) in 1992, administers and marks the COBIT Foundations examination, which is scheduled on the last day of the course.
As COBIT was originally designed by the auditing community to measure IT, it is not surprising to see public companies turning to the framework, especially to comply with Sarbanes-Oxley section 404, said Pink Elephant President David Ratcliffe, in a statement.
It made sense for us to extend COBIT Foundations to our global customers affected by the current legislative climate. Beyond the compliance aspect, COBIT provides generally accepted indicators of what a well run IT organization should look like.
The full course syllabus with presentation locations, dates, prices and registration options can be found here. Customers can also register for COBIT Foundations by calling their local Pink Elephant office.
There are no mandatory prerequisites, however, work experience in governance, process improvement or IT services is recommended.
