To Members and Friends of TechForum:
We are concerned about the health and safety of our attendees, and as of March 12th, 5PM, made the decision to postpone TechForum’s Security Forum on April 2nd. because, among other things, New York State has declared a state of emergency, and has banned events that do not allow physical distancing of 6 ft.
We can’t confirm the new date until New York State lifts the state of emergency, and until it is considered safe to hold in-person events based on recommendations from the World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the NYC Dept. of Health. We will update all registrants and sponsors both personally and through this webpage regarding our new date. Currently, we are looking at Thursdays in June or July.
Please refer back to this page for any updates, or feel free to email us at , or fill out our Contact Form, and we will get right back to you.
