ITIL V3 focusing on Security and Outsourcing 

Version 3 of the IT Infrastructure Library is scheduled to be published on Wednesday by the U.K.’s Office of Government Commerce. ITIL sets out methodologies for managing an IT organization and processes such as help desk operations, as well as procedures for change management. The update covers some new areas that have emerged over the past seven years as major IT concerns, particularly outsourcing and security.

One of the standards that ITIL Version 3 is supposed to be more tightly integrated with is Cobit, formally known as the Control Objectives for Information and Related Technology. Cobit is a framework for governing IT and evaluating internal system controls, and it is increasingly being used by companies to help with their Sarbanes-Oxley Act compliance procedures.
