posted on by Kim Morrissy
A cyber security awareness initiative has cast voice actor Kaori Fukuhara (Tsukasa from Lucky Star, Maria from The Testament of Sister New Devil) as a personified Firewall in a video that explains cyber security in simple terms.
In the video, Firewall introduces viewers to the concepts of anti-virus, Web Application Firewall (WAF), Intrusion Detection System (IDS), Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), and proxies, each of which has a cute anime girl design.
Fukuhara will also appear a cyber security information conference scheduled on March 2. The conference will take the form of a Q&A session, where concepts like "How do hackers do cyber attacks on large organizations?" and "How do you defend against hackers?" will get explained. After the conference is over, Fukuhara will shake hands with her fans. "Come for the handshake, stay for the helpful information" seems to be the driving philosophy here.
The conference will take place at Stadio Hacoz at Musashi Koyama at 1:00 pm. An adult ticket costs 4,000 yen (US$36.40) while tickets for children under 18 will cost 1,000 yen (US$9.10). Children under 6 can attend for free.
