When deciding on the topic of my final project I found myself choosing between two ideas: creating a guide to using keyboard shortcuts and a tutorial on identifying phishing emails. After giving it some thought and talking it through with a few people, I decided that though becoming more efficient at using a keyboard is useful and applicable on a daily basis, being able to identify a phishing email is more important since the implications of not being able to identify a fake email are much greater. The latter would also, if done correctly, make for a more interesting video. At its base, my target audience is broad: anyone who uses email. I will likely get a little more specific when informing viewers what to do with a phishing email, limiting it to Gmail and perhaps one or two other services. I also plan on using Adelphi and its brand as an example, seemingly targeting Adelphi constituents, but viewers will be able to extrapolate the information provided to their respective organizations.
