Introduction

This training suite has been designed to provide professionals with the knowledge required to pass the COBIT 5 Foundation examination, as well as a clear understanding of the holistic capabilities of the COBIT 5 framework, a thorough idea of what GDPR is and the practical steps required to become GDPR compliant.

Originally developed and released by ISACA, COBIT is a time tested and widely recognized good-practice framework that focusses on achieving world-class governance of enterprise IT.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a data protection and privacy regulation introduced to protect individuals within the European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA). GDPR aims to give individuals more control over their personal data and unify regulations within the EU for businesses. On completing this suite, professionals will be able to apply their acquired knowledge to real-world businesses and ensure their organizations are fully in-line with GDPR regulations.

This COBIT 5 and GDPR suite is in line with the latest version of the COBIT 5 framework. It provides professionals with a comprehensive understanding of the IT governance framework, as well as an explanation of GDPR.

The COBIT 5 Foundation modules deliver comprehensive training on the framework’s globally accepted principles, tools, practices and models. This helps professionals and organizations to understand business requirements and realize benefits through effective and innovative utilization of IT. The course also builds awareness of the compliance targets which all organizations are required to achieve according to relevant laws, regulations, contractual agreements and policies.

Following the COBIT 5 Foundation course is a separate course on GDPR action and implementation. The course provides a simple explanation of the regulation, along with practical steps to help ensure an organization complies with the GDPR. The course covers the key GDPR terms, as well as its principles and the roles within organizations which are responsible for ensuring GDPR compliance.

The COBIT 5 Foundation certification is a prerequisite for sitting the COBIT 5 Implementation exam. This latter certification focusses on how to apply the COBIT 5 framework within an organization.

Benefits for Individuals

The COBIT 5 certification is a highly credible and established qualification which requires high-quality training. The qualification therefore offers a great deal of value to individuals who wish to establish a career associated with the governance of enterprise IT. This online training course is ideal for business managers, chief executives, IT/IS auditors, information security practitioners, IT practitioners, IT managers and any other roles associated with IT.

The GDPR Implementation course provides professionals with adequate knowledge, skills and practical steps to help in keeping their organizations GDPR-compliant. The EU regulation introduced various roles which must be filled within organizations which handle EU customer data. The course provides clarity on the different roles and their respective duties and responsibilities.

Benefits for Organizations

COBIT 5 is a comprehensive framework that enables organizations to maintain high-quality information to help support business decisions. Training employees in COBIT 5 can help organizations bridge IT departments with wider business goals through a common language. This can help to maximize the value that IT enterprises generate, align IT to strategic goals, achieve compliance with industry standards and improve the integration of information security.

One of the largest challenges faced by businesses in recent years has been the issue of GDPR compliance, which has had a huge impact on how organizations are permitted to use EU customer data. Holding a record of training your staff in GDPR can help your business demonstrate its compliance. The GDPR implementation course can help you provide your employees with a fundamental understanding of the regulation and ensure they are aware of the ramifications of data misuse. This can help organizations build a strong data protection culture amongst its employees.
