PBTK Manager Angela Go Receives COBIT 5 Certification

[Las Vegas, Nev] May 25, 2017 – Piercy Bowler Taylor & Kern (PBTK), a full-service accounting firm based in Las Vegas, is pleased to announce that Audit Manager, Angela Go, CPA, CISA has received her Certificate of Completion for the COBIT 5 Foundation Course. This certification complements her previous designations in accounting and information systems, and was the logical next step in her progression towards becoming an information systems audit and control professional.

“I first became interested in the COBIT 5 certification when I heard other IT professionals discussing how the COBIT 5 Framework changed the way governing bodies and management thought about the role of IT in their enterprise, “said Go. “Instead of thinking of the IT function as simply an operations support department, the COBIT 5 Framework shows how there is a more effective decision making process because the needs of both internal and external users are incorporated in the process. “

Go has been with PBTK since 2006. Prior to joining the Las Vegas office of PBTK she worked in the retail industry for 13 years; several of those years were spent in management positions. Her retail experience has provided her with valuable customer service and management skills that translate well into the accounting profession.

Launched in April 2012, COBIT 5 helps maximize the value of information by incorporating the latest thinking in enterprise governance and management techniques, and provides globally accepted principles, practices, analytical tools and models to help increase the trust in, and value from, information systems.
