Heroes Of “Sword Art Online” Enlisted To Fight For Cyber Security Awareness

Move over Section 9. That bunch of ameuatures have been replaced as, following last year’s Ghost in the Shell campaign, true hacker Kazuto Kirigaya will be leading the way for 2017’s Cyber Security Awareness Month. 


Kirito has been appointed Cyber Security Investigator by Japan’s The National Center of Incident Readiness and Strategy for Cybersecurity (NISC), Information-technology Promotion Agency (IPA) and Japan Network Security Association (JNSA). He’ll be helping the public learn how to protect their personal information from digital left and their networks from online attacks.

Similar to last year’s, awareness material, this time feature the leads of the Sword Art Online Ordinal Scale anime movie, will be distributed February 1-March 18. Digital signage will also be displayed in the Kanto and Kansai regions.
