WHAT IS COBIT?
COBIT is a business information and technology management framework created by the international ISACA. COBIT defines
the components and design factors to build and sustain a best-fit governance system. The globally recognized COBIT 2019 Framework helps ensure effective EGIT, facilitating easier, tailored implementation—strengthening COBIT’s continuing role as an important driver
of innovation and business transformation.
From its foundation in the IT audit community, COBIT has developed into a broader and more comprehensive information
and technology (I&T) governance and management framework and continues to establish itself as a generally accepted framework
for I&T governance.
WHY HAS THE LOGO CHANGED?
COBIT 5 was published in 2012, making it almost 7 years old. Since that time, other frameworks and standards have evolved, resulting in a different landscape. The emergence of new technology and business trends in the use of IT (e.g. digital transformation, DevOps) have not been incorporated into COBIT, requiring
a re-alignment. To remain relevant, it is imperative that COBIT continues to evolve requiring more frequent and fluid updates. The red arrow symbolizes this notion of continuous evolution. Additionally, to ensure effective version control, all future updates will be stamped with the year corresponding to the release of the most updated guidance.

DOES COBIT 2019 ALIGN WITH OTHER INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS AND FRAMEWORKS?
One of the guiding principles applied throughout the development of COBIT 2019 was to maintain the positioning of COBIT as an umbrella framework. Thus, COBIT continues to align with
a number of relevant standards, frameworks and/or regulations. The COBIT 2019 includes references and aligns to concepts originating in other sources (e.g., other IT standards and frameworks).
In this context, alignment means:
A full list of referenced standards and guidance used during the development of the COBIT 2019 can be found in the COBIT 2019 Overview power point (part of the COBIT 2019 toolkit) and also available in COBIT 2019 Framework: Introduction and Methodology.
