Sandbox To Fieldcraft: Ditching The Simulation

Playing In The Sandbox Is For Kids

[excerpt definition from Wikipedia]

In computer security, a sandbox is a security mechanism for separating running programs, usually in an effort to mitigate system failures or software vulnerabilities from spreading. It is often used to execute untested or untrusted programs or code, possibly from unverified or untrusted third parties, suppliers, users or websites, without risking harm to the host machine or operating system.[1] A sandbox typically provides a tightly controlled set of resources for guest programs to run in, such as scratch space on disk and memory. Network access, the ability to inspect the host system or read from input devices are usually disallowed or heavily restricted.

In the sense of providing a highly controlled environment, sandboxes may be seen as a specific example of virtualization. Sandboxing is frequently used to test unverified programs that may contain a virus or other malicious code, without allowing the software to harm the host device.[2]

All hackery aside, let’s take a step back and look at this in legitimate focus. The sandbox is a place designated for childplay. There is a spot on the playground, usually where the swings and other hardware are located where a pit is dug out and filled with sand on which the children play. The sand not only provides a medium with which the children can build the castles they envision, but a soft ground from which the blunt trauma of falling from a height may affect. I know this, because as a youngster I was a daredevil and jumping from a swing set led to a slight fracture of my radius. Thankfully, for the sand, I did not have to experience any worse of a consequence from my intrepid and frankly stupid maneuvers.

The same children playing in the sandbox are the ones whom grow up to perchance die on the beaches of theatre. I agree that this is an extremely stark comparison, with some grim consequencese for casual ignorance. Perhaps, conceptually, the idea of swords to ploughshares may be a goal to keep in mind, however the fallacy of importing only butter and no steel may spell the doom of an enterprise, or generation. There is not better time to take the kids out of the sandbox and drop them onto the beaches of conflict than right now. That’s because learning in a simulated environment is akin to handicapping the process by which we operate during mission critical scenarios.

Translated For Security Measures

Briq Haus Ltd. Security & Intelligence operatives are fully versed and trained in both aspects of security operations; sandbox and fieldcraft. While the benefit of practice in a secluded environment separate from the harsh realities of consequence and effect may be evident in reports and documents, it is a rare thing that during real-time security exercises and operations that enough streaming data is retained for the intention of creating some slide-show or powerpoint presentation. In the real world, there are ongoing causal relationships between the interplay of hostile foreign intelligences and mission-specific imperatives. The continuing dynamic and morphic environment of the field require out-of-the-box thinking, not delusional but rather unconventional.

Between the combined expertise of our information technology and intelligence community professionals, Briq Haus Ltd. not only boasts the boardroom banter to deliver effective presentation and slideshows as per sandbox experimentation dictates, but we have tried-and-true tested in the trenches fieldcraft experience in being exposed to the evolving risk dynamic and threat platform wielded by hostile foreign intelligences co-operating within the framework of real-world, non-simulated ongoing security operations. Being increasingly tested above and beyond the imagined or preset boundaries of a security experiment within a sandbox environment forces the experts on my team to constantly and consistently demonstrate proof-of-work mastery of security implementation and product deployment in the professional corporate theatre. We are not corporate goons, nor are we classroom geeks, we are ex-military and intelligence professionals with backgrounds ranging from digital to physical warfare, and with experience in advanced security environments actualizing each domain of the security spectrum; physical, logistical, analytical, and digital.

FISMA, HIPAA, SOX, ISO 17799, and GLBA??? The list goes on and continues to expand in depth and breadth as the dynamic technology presently occupying the field has different operational procedure and similar compliance requirements. What about securing IoT devices? What about Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design?
