Governance and management of enterprise information and related technology (GEIT) is ultimately the board of directors’ (or other governing entity’s) responsibility. The board sets the direction for management to achieve the enterprise objectives and is accountable to the enterprise stakeholders. COBIT 5 is an internationally accepted business GEIT framework from ISACA that was developed by, and for, practitioners and includes insights from IT and general management literature. This white paper helps practitioners to better understand the COBIT 5 principles and, therefore, be more efficient and effective in the application of the COBIT 5 GEIT framework to their enterprises. This paper clearly explains how the principles of COBIT 5 are built on sound, accepted IT and general governance and management guidance and practices.
