We wrote last month about the Maryland Technology Development Corp.'s planned $20 million cybersecurity fund. Today, the state-backed investment group gave that fund a name: Orange Knocks.
If you were wondering where the name comes from (I was) — "Orange" refers to the Department of Defense's "Orange Book," which in the early 1980s laid out a formal evaluation criteria for DoD computer security. "Knocks" is a reference to the School of Hard Knocks, according to a TEDCO spokeswoman.
