Introduction

Does your business need to overhaul its IT enterprise and ensure it stays in touch with the wider organization? Are your IT programs aligned with business goals? Are you concerned that your IT governance is not up to standard?

This comprehensive training suite brings together the holistic capabilities you need to operate your IT enterprise efficiently with the practical steps required for GDPR compliance. The suite has been designed to provide professionals with the knowledge required to pass the COBIT 5 Foundation examination. Learners will gain a clear understanding of the holistic capabilities of the COBIT 5 framework, along with a thorough grounding in the impact of the GDPR on organizations that utilize EU data.

Originally developed and released by ISACA, the COBIT 5 framework focuses on achieving world-class governance of enterprise IT.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a data protection and privacy regulation. It was introduced to protect individuals within the European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA). The 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 have the knowledge to ensure their organizations are fully in-line with GDPR requirements.

The COBIT 5 Foundation and GDPR Implementation Suite covers the very latest version of the COBIT 5 framework. It provides professionals with a comprehensive understanding of the IT governance framework, as well as an actionable explanation of GDPR.

The COBIT 5 Foundation modules deliver comprehensive training on the framework’s globally accepted principles, tools, models and practices. Practitioners are able to better understand business requirements, enabling them to realize benefits through effective and innovative utilization of IT.

Following the COBIT 5 Foundation course are a series of informative modules on GDPR action and implementation. Learners receive 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, compliance targets, contractual agreements, laws and required job roles.

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

Benefits for Individuals

The COBIT 5 certification is a highly-credible and well-established qualification. Needless to say, achieving it requires high-quality training. The qualification offers real value to anyone wishing to establish a career associated with the governance of enterprise IT.

The GDPR Implementation course provides knowledge, skills and practical steps that are essential for establishing GDPR compliance in organizations that utilize data.

The EU regulation introduced various roles that must be filled within organizations that handle EU customer data. The course provides clarity on the different roles and their respective duties and responsibilities.

Benefits for Organizations

The COBIT 5 framework enables organizations to maintain high-quality information to support business decisions. Training employees in COBIT 5 helps connect IT departments with wider business and strategic goals through a common language. This can help to maximize the value that IT enterprises generate. Organizations adopting the COBIT 5 principles can more easily 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. The GDPR has had a huge impact on how organizations are permitted to use personal data in the EU. Demonstrating that your staff members are trained in the GDPR is an important step in becoming GDPR-compliant.

To truly embed compliant behaviors, your people need to understand their responsibilities. They must recognize that GDPR principles need to be built into the company culture and everyday processes.
