Describe the primary goal of the COBIT v4.1 framework. Define COBIT.
The purpose of COBIT is to provide management and business process owners with an information technology (IT) governance model that helps in delivering value from IT with understanding and managing the risks associated with IT. COBIT also bridges the gaps between control requirements, business risk, and technical issues. It is a control model to meet the needs of IT governance and ensure the integrity of information and information systems by developing good practices for IT control for organization.

Process Controls (PC) each COBIT process has genetic control requirements that are identified by PCn for process control number. They should be considered together with the process control objectives to have a complete view of control requirements.
6. Application Controls(AC) COBIT assumes the design and implementation of automated application controls to be responsibility of IT, which is covered in the Acquire and Implement domain based on business requirements defined using COBIT’s information criteria. The COBIT IT processes cover general IT controls, but only the development aspects of application controls.
View value and Risk Driver, describe what these objective covers.
The value and risk driver provide an informative basis for the achievement of control objectives and therefore for the realization and support of the risk management. Value drives can be interpreted as examples for upcoming business benefits through an adequate control coverage, where as the risk driver can be seen as examples for avoiding or handling risks.
In your Lab Report file, explain how you use the P09 Control Objectives to organize identified IT risks, threats, and vulnerabilities so you can then manage and remediate the risks, threats, and vulnerabilities in a typical infrastructure.
