Baltimore, MD, Jan 25, 2016 – This month, Clear Ridge Defense (CRD), a cyber defense contractor in the Ft. Meade community, established office space at the “CyberHive” in bwtech@UMBC Research and Technology Park.

Becoming part of the CyberHive and taking advantage of all that the Cyber Incubator has to offer will introduce new technologies and talent into CRD’s service offerings. “We’ve got talent, but we don’t know what we don’t know,” says company Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Jeffrey Bullock. CRD believes that knowledge is power – and that’s the best way to infuse new technologies into defense systems.
