It is becoming more apparent to me that the Forensic 4cast Awards are becoming a huge deal. This thing seems to be snowballing into something huge. I ran a search for “forensic 4cast awards” today and was surprised to see many references from all over the world. Cellebrite even did a press release on winning two years running!
It is funny to me to see what has happened over the last two years. We started with Simon and I standing in front of a camera and, within a year, had moved to SANS presenting the awards before a live audience. The question is where do we go from here?
I’ve had a few people talking to me about different things such as doing an awards ceremony in the UK just for us Brits, and one in the USA for everyone, down to the format of the awards ceremony, and so forth.
I’ve always said that these are not my awards, they belong to the community, all I do is to provide a platform for them to take place. That being said I want to know your thoughts on next year’s event. Where, when, how, who, etc. I’m willing to listen to everything and anything that you might suggest. Be warned, however, if you have a good idea I might ask you to help implement it.
