ABSTRACT
Security competitions can be a lot of fun, and preparing for them often exposes participants to skills they might not otherwise have encountered. Yet, participating in such competitions doesn't necessarily provide a road map for future success. By offering enough feedback, organizers could turn competitions into valuable training opportunities, rather than simply opportunities for participants to self-assess their skills.
