What is COBIT?

COBIT is an enterprise IT framework that combined governance and management techniques for increasing the value of, and trust in, key IT systems.

How does COBIT work?

COBIT is a generic framework consisting of a reference model, best practices, tools, and a common language. Each element helps organizations understand and optimize key processes while also improving communication and clarity.

What is the GDPR?

‘GDPR’ stands for the ‘General Data Protection Regulation’. It is an EU regulation that addresses the transfer and storage of data in and outside the European Union and the European Economic Area.

How can COBIT benefit businesses?

COBIT can help businesses to optimize their IT governance practices and ensure IT is aligned with corporate goals. It can also be extremely helpful when auditing IT to ensure it is compliant with industry standards and regulations.

Does the GDPR apply to every business?

The GDPR applies to any organization in or outside the EU that stores or transfers data from within the EU. It also applies to individuals, unless they utilize data solely for ‘domestic or personal activity’.

In short, any business from a self-employed trader to an international conglomerate can find GDPR applies to them.

What is the value of COBIT training?

According to ISACA, the average salary for candidates who have passed COBIT Foundation is $102,112. According to Indeed, COBIT practitioners can earn between £45,000 and over £150,000.

Remember, salaries depend on each candidate’s role, experience, and location.

Who can use COBIT?

COBIT 2019 is generic enough to be used by organizations of virtually any size, industry, sector, or location.

What are the penalties for failing to be GDPR-compliant?

The fines for failing to be GDPR compliant depend on which articles are breached. The first choice is up to €10 million, or 2% annual global turnover, while the second is up to €20 million, or 4% annual global turnover. In both cases, the fee will be whichever option is higher.
