What is COBIT 5 for Information Security?

ISACA, the global IT Association, released COBIT 5 for Information Security to help security leaders use the COBIT framework (which promotes the governance and management of IT enterprise goal achievement) to link information security with organizational strategic goals. It also helps organizations comply with the increasingly large list of IT governance laws, regulations and requirements.
