Right now in Japan, there is a special campaign from February 1st to March 18th to promote cyber security awareness. The campaign is promoted through the Government of Japan and the Japan Network Security Association (JNSA), with cooperation from manga publishing company Kodansha. At different train stations especially at one of the busiest stations, Shibuya, there are large advertisements featuring the characters of the animated series Ghost In the Shell: Stand Alone Complex.

To coincide with this campaign, a special manga has been made available through the JNSA called Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex – Human-Error-Traps. There are two different options available for people to acquire the manga and these options are all through JNSA’s official website.
