Trustwave Teams with Illinois Technology Association to Foster Cybersecurity Skills

Focus on building the next generation of cybersecurity professionals that will help businesses fight cybercrime

CHICAGO - June 23, 2016 - Trustwave today announced a partnership with the Illinois Technology Association (ITA) to foster cybersecurity skills and job placements that can better help businesses better fight cybercrime, protect data and reduce risk.

As part of the partnership, Trustwave has become the only platinum sponsor of the ITA's 2016 Tech Challenge. In its 7th year, the ITA Tech Challenge is a programming and coding skills competition for students at targeted Midwest universities. The ITA has increased the number of participating universities from 15 to 21 in 2016. The ITA and the Tech Challenge program has met with more than 2,500 technology-focused students across the Midwest, and each year dozens of offers are extended to Tech Challenge participants for internships or entry-level positions at high-tech companies including Trustwave.

Phase one of the program starts in September with qualifying challenges held on 21 participating university campuses. Phase two involves the top 50 scorers which are invited to Chicago for a final challenge and interviews with Chicago-area technologies companies. Among those interviewing, Trustwave has more than 300 global job openings and more than 150 based in the Chicago area.

Trustwave Chief Executive Officer and President Robert J. McCullen said: "The shortage of skilled information security professionals is not only an issue we must address immediately in the workforce but also for the future in the world's classrooms. By teaming with the Illinois Technology Association, Trustwave hopes that students have an informative and engaging opportunity to explore the challenging world of cybersecurity, choose this exciting career path, and join in our cause to fight cybercrime, protect data and reduce risk."

Illinois Technology Association Director of Talent Programs Trisha Degg said: "As a key leader in the fight against cybercrime, Trustwave is in a unique position to help businesses protect their systems, networks and applications from threats. We're pleased to partner with such an innovative services and technology provider as part of our quest to bring high-tech skills to the Illinois and Chicago technology community. We thank Trustwave for its support and sponsorship, and look forward to bringing qualified candidates to Chicago's top cybersecurity employer."
