The highly anticipated Africa Cyber Security and Forensic Summit that was scheduled for the 27th and 28th September did not happen. This is the first time in my event planning that I was not able to make un event happen.
Organizing events is not an easy job, I have seen events become successful and I have watched other crumbule. I have not been part of one that has crumbled until this week.
We started with a great plan, seeking the partnership of the Kenya Cyber Security and Forensics Association, with expectations that together we will be able to pull together a great event.
We also hired the services of a PR company with was to approach sponsors and raise money that would make the event happen. For sometime we felt we were on schedule, and we would make it, but as the date approached it became clear that it will be difficult to have the event.
We have not had discussions with the organizing team to see the way forward. Some people are of thought that we should give a new date and keep planning, others think that we should call it a day, at least for this year and plan for another year 2019.
We will keep you updated on what happens, if we will have a new date or if we will plan for the event for 2019.
