Trillium Inc has announced its acquisition of the assets of cybersecurity consulting firm CanBusHack, Inc. Established in 2010, CanBusHack is the oldest automotive cybersecurity consulting and penetration testing company in the world. It is widely recognized as an industry leader thanks to its broad portfolio of successful projects with major OEM and Tier1 customers around the world.

Trillium made the announcement during the annual DEF CON hacker convention, being held at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada, from July 27 – 30. Trillium’s automotive cybersecurity technology is under attack in the Car Hacking Village by the hacker community, who were offered the challenge of compromising Trillium’s BrainBOX and SecureCAR Server platform — as part of the Car Hacking Village’s “Capture the Flag” competition.

The combination of CanBusHack’s sophisticated “Red Team” and Trillium’s advanced “Blue Team” expertise is expected to deliver a 100% IP accretive environment for developing advanced vehicular cybersecurity systems.

As a result of the acquisition, CanBusHack President and Founder Robert Leale will join Trillium as its Global Consulting Practice Director, and be deeply involved with Trillium’s cybersecurity product development roadmap. He will also assume responsibility for building Trillium’s worldwide capabilities in cybersecurity consulting and penetration testing.
