Date/Time:       Thursday, May 11th, 9:00am – 5:00pm

 Location:        Boise Plaza, 1111 West Jefferson, Boise ID

 CPEs:              8 CPE hours

  • $200 ISACA Member Early Bird Price

  • $300 non-ISACA Member Normal Price (after April 14th)

Learning Objectives: After completing this session, the participant will be able to:

  • Recognize the various framework altitudes in the GEIT ecosystem and how they can be collectively used to align with enterprise needs using COBIT as the core.
  • Understand a model to synchronize various frameworks and standards such as COBIT, ITIL, TOGAF, PRINCE2, PMBOK, NIST, ISO38500, ISO27000, ISO20000, ISO31000, and many more.
  • Gain practical advice on how to implement, modify, manage and control processes using the COBIT implementation model.

General Description: In the IT Governance environment there are multiple frameworks, models and standards to choose from.  A challenge for most organizations is simply understanding what all of these are, and which ones are applicable or appropriate for them.  Some common questions include: If we’re using ITIL, should we consider COBIT?  How do ISO standards fit into my model?  Should I be using Project Management models if I already use COBIT? In this insightful presentation on frameworks and standards integration, explore the many models that are available today:  what they are, how they fit, and why choose them. Most importantly, we will learn how integrate several frameworks to create a more holistic approach to leveraging multiple best practices under a single model.
