According to a recent press release, “Following the launch of the COBIT 2019 framework last month, ISACA has published a Design Guide and an Implementation Guide to make the governance framework more practical, customizable and easier to use. The new guides, available as free downloads for ISACA’s 135,000 members as well as for purchase by nonmembers, are: (1) COBIT 2019 Design Guide: Designing an Information and Technology Governance Solution—Offers how-to information to design a tailored governance system for organizations. (2) COBIT 2019 Implementation Guide: Implementing and Optimizing an Information and Technology Governance Solution—Provides a roadmap for continuous governance improvement.”
The release continues, “The Implementation Guide is an update to the COBIT 5 Implementation Guide and incorporates the design factors. The Design Guide is a new offering that includes four steps to design a tailored governance system: (1) Understand the context and strategy. This includes understanding the enterprise strategy, goals, risk profile, and current information- and technology-related challenges. (2) Determine the initial scope of the governance system. This includes establishing governance and management priorities. (3) Refine the scope of the governance system. This includes considering the threat landscape, compliance requirements, the role of IT, the technology adoption strategy, enterprise size and more. (4) Resolve conflicts and conclude the governance system design. This includes resolving priority conflicts, adopting resolution strategies and sustaining the governance system.”
