I'm confused and wondering which one is the most easy to take or choose for creating IT Risk management reporting for banking and financial company with local / national serving only within a country ?

between CoBIT or COSO or some other management framework that I can adopt ?

any kind of comment and suggestion would be great.

    Neither one is "easy," but COBIT is more geared towards IT systems than COSO

    Cool thanks for the reply, so in this case to examine a company risk based on IT, using CoBIT is  preferred over COSO.

    What about ITIL ?

    ITIL would be more of a high level set of practices.  COBIT gets into specific systems.  So it depends on what your needs are.  ITIL might be better if you're looking for a first round of risk assessment and compliance baselining, with more system specific reviews to be done later on.
