London, UK: Educating the next generation of workers on effective governance and management of information is critical to support businesses in all industries and geographies. To help professors prepare students for work in the field of information technology (IT), ISACA, a global association of 110,000 IT security, assurance and governance professionals, has released a new student book titled Basic Foundational Concepts Student Book: Using COBIT® 5, caselets (brief case studies) and supporting teaching notes incorporating guidance from COBIT 5. These teaching materials are for academic professionals to use free of charge as part of their IT curriculum.

Professors and teachers can use the educational materials to explain and present principles of COBIT 5 in their curricula for students, regardless of their level of business experience. Professors who teach courses such as information security, risk management, and operations management will find the materials especially useful. COBIT 5 is a business framework for the governance and management of enterprise information and technology. It provides globally accepted principles, practices and analytical tools to help business and IT leaders maximize trust in and value from their enterprise’s information and technology.

“The library of COBIT 5 teaching materials creates the foundation for well-trained and qualified candidates who will be able to demonstrate the knowledge of COBIT 5 to govern and manage enterprise IT as normal business practice,” said Kameswara Rao Namuduri, Ph.D., CISA, CISM, CISSP, University of North Texas, USA, chair of ISACA’s Academic Program Subcommittee. “Understanding how to apply COBIT 5 to business issues equips students with the ability to add value to their future employers and themselves.”

The caselets on IT governance, business risks, program development, management and solutions are designed for graduate and senior undergraduate classes. The caselets will help students learn principles of COBIT 5 and derive a set of approaches and solutions that fulfill IT governance objectives. The student book will help students understand and learn core concepts of IT governance frameworks, including COBIT 5, and learn techniques for assurance.
