As more mobile sensing devices are introduced in the market, the risks associated with cybersecurity increase. Our research goal is to shed light on novice designers’ awareness to these risks with a focus on the sensing device design. We coded qualitative data from design thinking student teams at the University of California, Berkeley to see how carefully they took data vulnerability of their created solutions into account. The results reveal that novice design students did not pay much attention to the data vulnerability of their new solutions, in spite of numerous prompts for them to do so.
