ISACA releases Cloud-guidance for COBIT

Written on:August 11, 2011

ISACA, the organisation behind COBIT, released a document called “IT Control Objectives for Cloud Computing” (E-paper, $50).

A useful addition to the existing pool of documents is chapter 5, providing an overview of assurance frameworks and their applicability.
