Shutts & Bowen partner Kevin D. Rosen and Q6 Cyber executive vice president Robert Villanueva will expose cybercrime on the Dark Web, highlight recent cyber-attacks, and discuss ways for the industry to defend against cybercrime, at the closing keynote address of HITEC®, the world’s largest and oldest hospitality technology exposition and conference.
“I am honored for us to speak and educate the hospitality industry at HITEC® in Toronto. Today, it is essential for the industry to fully understand the rapidly evolving cyber threat landscape and protect its customers, employees, and businesses from cybercrime. The industry must be highly proactive to reduce data breaches and minimize harm from an army of criminals that operate in cyberspace. With our training and help, the industry can fight back,” said Rosen, based in West Palm Beach and a member of the Shutts Financial Services Practice Group and the Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Taskforce.
The conference will be held June 26 – June 29 in Toronto.

He previously served as Senior Regional Counsel in the Department of Enforcement at the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and Senior Attorney with the Florida Department of Banking and Finance.
At FINRA, Rosen was at the front line of cybersecurity regulation, having served nationally as FINRA’s Regulatory Specialist on FINRA’s Cybersecurity and Information Technology Disposition Group. As a lead FINRA enforcement lawyer, Rosen also directed many significant enforcement investigations and disciplinary actions related to anti-money laundering compliance, supervision and sales practice violations, providing him with years of direct experience with FINRA’s enforcement processes.
