Excess information characteristic to the current environment leads to the need for a change of the organizations’ perspective and strategy not only through the raw data processing, but also in terms of existing applications generating new information. The overwhelming evolution of digital technologies and web changes led to the adoption of new and adapted internal policies and the emergence of regulations at level of governments or different social organisms. Information security risks arising from the current dynamics demand fast solutions linked to hardware, software and also to education of human resources. Business Intelligence (BI) solutions have their specific evolution in order to bring their contribution to ensure the protection of data through specific components (Big Data, cloud, analytics). The current trend of development of BI applications on mobile devices brings with it a number of shortcomings related to information security and require additional protective measure regarding flows, specific processing and data storage.
