The project, which is backed by the Home Office wants to get people from different backgrounds to come together and come up with ideas to improve on future security of mobile devices.As developers like Nokia, Sony and Apple produce new handsets which are ever increasingly more attractive and expensive they also make them targets for criminals to want to steal them. So with this in mind the Design Council has launched a challenge to designers to develop a more secure mobile handset, while at the same time keeping it's style appeal.
They have broken the challenge down into three areas:
* How to make a mobile harder or less desirable to steal
* How to make personal data more secure
* How to make online and mobile transactions more secure
If you can solve these challenges then you could be in line for the £400,000 prize.
