Hack Across America’s Latest Stop is the University of Detroit Mercy

Cybersecurity is a hot subject area on university campuses nationwide. In particular, schools in the state of Michigan are refining curricula to produce professionals capable of defending against the increasingly complex nature of cybercrime and intrusion in both government and industry.


That’s why Trillium’s latest stop on the Hack Across America tour was the University of Detroit-Mercy (UDM). The school is a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and National Security Agency (NSA) designated Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense (CAE-CD). Over forty students attended the engagement on UDM’s campus on November 8th, 2019.


During the presentations given by Trillium’s sales engineer and cloud engineer on the need for securing the data generated by connected vehicles, UDM students were engaged and asked many questions. They exhibited a strong grasp of encryption technologies, familiarity with CAN bus networks, and deep interest in work placements at Trillium’s Ann Arbor office location. The two-hour discussion which followed the presentations was marked by intense curiosity about Trillium’s multi-layered cybersecurity solution, its online car hacking simulation called PassGO, and how a trusted mobility platform and data management services can be deployed to make connected vehicles safe.
