    • Introduction which is accessible and written using non-technical language.
    • Body Sections will bear the names of the topics (spear phishing and the four remedies) you are researching and presenting, not the familar Methodology, Results and Discussion of lab reports.
    • Summary written using non-technical language, possibly including Policy Recommendations.
    • Bibliography using the IEEE Style .
