Abstract: Many organisations face problems in managing records. Increasingly, technology is causing responsibility for records/information management decisions to pass to the end user. At the same time organisations face a plethora of legislation and regulation relating to organisational records. This paper proposes that the management of organisational records, irrespective of format needs to be considered a component of information quality. The relationship between information management, information risk, information quality and corporate risk is explored and an Information Risk Construct proposed as a means for organisations to assess their information management functionality, to improve weak areas, and to improve overall information quality.

Keywords: information quality; information management; organisational records; corporate risk; operational risk; information risk; risk construct.
