Quantum computing is a new paradigm that uses the properties of quantum mechanics to achieve computers and technologies more powerful. Quantum Technology will solve some types of problems more efficiently than current technology. Every organization that wants to use all the power of quantum computing to be more competitive in its sector, must have a method that allows it to take advantage of all the value that this technology can provide. This article proposes the development of a framework for the Management and Governance of Quantum Computing based on COBIT.
