COBIT

COBIT ® is a framework for the enterprise governance and management of information and technology (I&T) that supports enterprise goal achievement.

Cybersecurity

Today’s cybersecurity attacks are representative of more threatening ones ahead, as evidenced by recent destructive attacks. Attackers are organized and well-supported, leveraging sophisticated methods. At the same time, society is highly dependent on technology, connectivity and information sharing. As mobile devices continue to proliferate, and as digital transformation continues to evolve, the need to protect against cybersecurity attacks is increasingly important. Therefore, leveraging the top industry information security frameworks such as NIST and ISO are key. This domain primarily focuses on the governance, management and administration of a cybersecurity framework using the NIST Cybersecurity Framework.
