RE: COBIT Focus - COBIT and the CPA Firm

We have for many years used COBIT as a framework for our IT SOX testing.  This has been very successful for our team.  We also have utilized COBIT to help us design our IT Audits.  However, we are still on 4.1 for these functions.  Hopefully now that the Assurance Guide is out we will be migrating to that.

For finaicial audits our audit teams use a methodolgy that has guidance for the IT Specialists.  Obviously, we follow that but we tend to use COBIT as a 'gut check' if we are covering everything we need to.  There are areas that we add in to the prescribed methodology that we feel either gives us a better understanding or adds value to our clients.
