Control Objectives for Information and related Technology (COBIT) is used as a set of generally accepted best practices framework to assist in developing appropriate IT governance and controls, and assurance in a company that links IT to business requirements and related resources. It provides tools in the form of high-level objectives, to assess and measure the performance of IT processes. COBIT consists of three main parts: 1. control framework, 2. management guidelines, and 3. implementation toolset. COBIT provides insight into managing the system, its risk and its controls effectively. It serves as a standard for complete assessment and a means of consistent reporting. Due to the cost considerations, COBIT is mainly applicable to large enterprises, even though it is unlikely that the entire COBIT process will be implementable.
