ISACA announced the release of Risk IT today – an IT-related risk framework based on COBIT that provides a comprehensive view of the business risks associated with IT initiatives. In development for some time, it is a combined effort of a five-country task force comprising thousands of hours of work from a team of IT and business experts and 60 expert reviewers as well as over 1600 comments from around the world and across industries. Based on a set of guiding principles for effective management of IT risk, Risk IT provides a framework for enterprises to identify, govern and manage IT risk. Whereas COBIT provides the set of controls to mitigate risk, Risk IT enables an enterprise to understand and manage all significant IT risk types and allows the enterprise to make appropriate risk-aware decisions.
