Today also marked the start of the City Colleges of Chicago's (CCC)
inaugural Cyber Security Boot Camp. Through a first-of-its-kind
partnership with the U.S. Department of Defense, the 24-week cyber
security training initiative prepares City Colleges students for
highly-skilled jobs in one of the nation's fastest growing industries.

"Trustwave's commitment to and expansion in downtown Chicago
demonstrates Chicago's blossoming tech scene and ability to draw a
skilled workforce for high-tech companies," Mayor Emanuel said. "This
expansion not only benefits its current employees but also provides jobs
for residents across Chicago and strengthens our growing tech economy. I
look forward to watching them continue to thrive right here in the city
of Chicago for years to come."

In the new office Trustwave has established a state-of-the-art showplace
for customers with a new customer experience center, and has created an
innovative, comfortable and collaborative workspace for its employees.
By the end of 2017, when the second and final phase of construction is
set to be completed, Trustwave will have increased the size of its
global headquarters by 65 percent. Approximately one third of
Trustwave's approximately 1,700 global employees are based in Chicago,
and Trustwave is hiring more sales, engineering, security research and
operations talent at an aggressive pace to support its growth. Phase two
will create room for more than 700 Chicago-based employees.

"To facilitate our current pace of growth and innovation and the hiring
we're doing in the Chicago area, Trustwave has updated our headquarters
to better reflect our company's brand, success and culture as one of the
industry's leading and fastest-growing cybersecurity and managed
security services providers," Trustwave Chief Executive Officer and
President Robert J. McCullen said. "The new Trustwave headquarters is a
state-of-the-art space that is a showplace for customers and a
collaborative, secure and comfortable environment for our employees."

From its worldwide headquarters in downtown Chicago, Trustwave helps
businesses fight cybercrime, protect data and reduce risk. At its
headquarters, security analysts, ethical hackers, forensic
investigators, researchers, engineers, sales and support staff develop
and deliver some of the most innovative cybersecurity technologies and
managed security services in the industry.

The CCC's Cyber Security Boot Camp will be run from Wilbur Wright
College. To engage the highly-skilled cyber security apprentices
completing the boot camp, several of the city's corporate leaders in the
IT industry, including Trustwave, have committed to providing
cybersecurity students with a range of supports, including: internship
opportunities, ongoing mentoring, recruitment and job placement, and to
advise CCC on curriculum development.

Over the last few years, Trustwave has made significant investments in
creating great workplaces for employees. Many of the numerous office
improvements have supported Trustwave's international growth and
expanding geographic footprint. Trustwave has opened new office space in
Canada, Israel, and Poland, and has recently built new Advanced Security
Operations Centers in Sydney, Australia, and Tokyo, Japan. Trustwave has
customers in 96 countries supported by employees in 29 countries. The
new Chicago headquarters in its current building in downtown Chicago
marks the next phase of expansion for the company.

"70 West Madison is ideal for Trustwave not only for its central
location in downtown Chicago and proximity to major transportation, but
our property will also allow Trustwave to grow and update its space
without significant disruption to its current operations," Stephen
Hearn, President and CEO of The Hearn Company said. "While Trustwave is
upgrading its headquarters, we are making significant improvements to
the building that will bring a reimagined, fresher, and more youthful
feel to this iconic property for our tenants, their employees, and their
guests. We couldn't be more pleased that Trustwave has chosen 70 West
Madison for its major headquarters expansion."
