Abstract: Nowadays employees are often on the road wasting time when travelling and when waiting at airports or other transportation facilities. Companies and employees try to change this lost time into productive time. Laptops, smart phones and other mobile appliances can be used to do professional work at a distance. But using mobile appliances to access the company network to retrieve information can be risky. Authentication and privacy are two crucial points. Browser attacks and mail client attacks are the biggest threats to mobile applications. Mobile security management can be structured as a 3-steps procedure; first, securing the user mobile devices and the local data; second, securing user communication via interne, or the transition of the data and; third, securing user access to systems on the company server. Mobile learning is one of the possible options on distance professional applications, where learner authentication is a key issue. Also, mobile learning applications require the integration of security design in the development process. The effective professional use of mobile applications can be guaranteed if an information security management policy is formulated and implemented in the organization.
