A small number of challenge coins are being created for the contest and one side features a QR Code and clues to be used in the World Championship of Social Engineering Capture the Flag (CTF). The other side of the coin can feature your company logo and anything you wish to have featured. There are two small sets of coins being created.
A series of metal badges are being created through Make It Urz for the World Championship of Social Engineering Capture the Flag (CTF) and function as both clues and flags that must be obtained. Each of these badges can feature your company logo and information. The game objective for these is a contestant must collect as many as possible from conference attendees.

Your company logo will be featured on these badges and will be seen and wore by a large number of the conference attendees.
A room is reserved at the resort hosting the World Championship of Social Engineering Capture the Flag (CTF).
