Educational animation tool for phishing/vishing awareness

Supervised by Amir Javed; Moderated by Federico Liberatore

My idea is to create an interactive user interface which quizzes participants on the different types of phishing/vishing attacks. Each scenario will challenge the participant with different ways in which they could be faced with these types of attacks. I plan to implement it via HTML/CSS and JavaScript.

I want to test a variety of people from different age groups and backgrounds (security skillsets), all of whom could be a victim of this type of attack. I aim to identify the major gap there is in educating people on phishing and vishing and thereby provide an informative tool that helps to combat this gap.

I have found that this type of attack is very common in society and yet people are not sufficiently informed about it. I am deeply interested in security and want to provide a resource that will aid a variety of people not just those who pursue a career in security.
