Most information (data) is stored and processed on computer databases. Information management involves looking after the data carefully and safely so it does not fall into the wrong hands.
The information is used to provide reports for organisations and their customers, such as banks, retailers, government, schools and charities. To manage an organisation's data, you not only need to be interested in IT but also need to know what the organisation does and how it works.
