I am supposed to participate in a science exhibition where I have to prepare a static/dynamic model on IT/Cyber Security. In other words, I have to find a gap in this industry, fill it and present it accordingly.
So what do you think can be a good idea for this exhibition?

A way of teaching users how to be aware of what they click on in layman's terms for Grandma to understand. :)

IMO that gap is the user...It has been proven time and again that the user is a more substantial factor (weakest link) in security than the architecture of the operating system or installed protection software.Demonslay335's suggestion is good. You can even find some related info in this topic.

Another would be falling for Phony Tech Support Scams.

I resemble that!  --Roland Dangerfield


Seriously, include instructions on how to set up a Widows [or 3rd party] firewall, an anti-virus program, and an anti-malware program that Grandma can understand, appreciate, and use without being overly-burdoned by same.
