The Cyber Security Forum Initiative is pleased to announce the official release of the very first CSFI challenge coin! These limited edition coins are numbered and beautifully crafted. CSFI is offering its members the opportunity to purchase a limited number of these high quality challenge coins.
Challenge coins are often carried as a symbol of pride, teamwork, and unity among the bravest of our society.
The traditional use of challenge coins that developed from its military origin goes back at least half a century, with some accounts all the way back to colonial times. The reason challenge coins have stood the test of time is because they are proven to be effective as a way to build camaraderie and team loyalty.
Challenge coins have become a long-lasting, highly-collectible way to show your allegiance anytime, anywhere.
Support the CSFI mission, and proudly display your limited edition CSFI coin at work or at home!
