The presenter describes significant directions and core principles of selected frameworks. The presenter links these guidelines and principles to relevant practices. The principles outlined in this session reflect five ISACA defined overarching themes: (1) meeting stakeholder needs (2) covering the enterprise end-to-end (3) applying a single, integrated framework (4) enabling a holistic approach and (5) separating governance from management.

Objectives of the Presentation
  • Establishing processes for sustainable risk management
  • Critical IT risk assessment success factors
  • Evaluating IT Risk Counter measures
  • Identifying risks in controls
  • Ensuring governance alignment
  • Deploying an integrated governance strategy
Why Should you Attend
As a framework, enterprise governance of IT enables a 'system of controls' assisting in assuring organizational goals and objectives realization. 'Integrating COBIT with COSO and other frameworks' highlights IT governance alignment considerations for information and related technology. Didactically, this webinar covers five focus areas for merging COBIT with the entity's adopted frameworks to enable effective and efficient design and operation of an organizational system of controls. Regarding managerial design content, this webinar will convey the necessary ingredients for establishing appropriate governance, risk management and compliance. Furthermore, in this webinar, we will discuss operational control system deployments using COBIT and COSO domains as the foundational frameworks for ensuring entity-wide adaptability.

At the end of this session, the speaker will handle your specific questions and address any challenges you have/had in setting Integrating COBIT with other frameworks.

Topic Background
An entity's control environment (CE) can provide discipline and structure to processes that ensure meeting operational, financial and compliance requirements. As an integrated component, technology has and will continue to influence the CE as well as assume activity change agent responsibility. Nevertheless, technological development and deployment inextricably connect to the economic, social, political and informational factors that prevail in the entity's CE.

Managements' interest in, and awareness of, IT capabilities (including those performed for the entity by Third Party Providers (TPPs)) is important in establishing an entity-wide consciousness of control issues. To determine relevant IT control issues, an entity's CE typically requires management define control emphasis through 'assessments of importance' between IT domain criteria and entity objectives.

Derivatively, an entity's CE affects the IT organizational structure. Centralized structures often have a single computer processing strategy and use a unique set of systems and infrastructure software, enabling tighter management control over the IT architecture. Alternatively, in decentralized structures, each profit or cost center has a particular computer processing strategy, application programs, and infrastructure software, which may result in differences in policies and procedures and various levels of compliance at each location. Regardless, IT policies and procedures should demonstrate alignment with the entity's mission.
