The University of Baltimore’s Merrick School of Business has aligned two of its most recent programmatic offerings, the M.S. in Cybersecurity Management and the specialization in Risk Management and Insurance with the needs of the Maryland workforce. Roberto Cavazos, a lecturer and executive in residence at the school, has been named program director for this important contribution to Maryland business and the economy.


“The state has a strong pipeline of technical cybersecurity talent and we are looking to take that talent and produce what the industry needs in terms of business leadership,” said Murray Dalziel, dean of the Merrick School of Business. “Not only are we helping the cyber industry, our risk management and insurance specialization in the B.S. in Business Administration program is poised to aid the talent gap that is beginning to unfold in Maryland and around the country. Dr. Cavazos’s research and business experience transcend both areas and will provide the direction we need to move these programs forward.”


In 2018, Cavazos joined the Merrick School of Business as a lecturer and an executive-in-residence in the field of data science. Previously, he was consulting in areas of economics and data science. His work has been cited in The Wall Street Journal, CNBC, Forbes, CBS, the Times of London, Elle, Advertising Age, the Baltimore Business Journal, among others. He focuses his research in economic analysis, statistics, data science, process improvement and fraud detection, predictive analytics, and cost of fraud.


Cavazos’s most recent work with the artificial intelligence-driven cybersecurity company, CHEQ, has revealed the overwhelming risk and fraud that advertisers face in digital advertising as well as the economics costs associated with fake influences, fake news, affiliate fraud, and click fraud.


“With mission-critical federal agencies like U.S. Cyber Command, NSA, DISA and NIST, and hundreds of civilian cybersecurity businesses, our cybersecurity management program is ready to provide the business acumen to the techies and nurture the managerial talent for Maryland’s future,” Cavazos said. “Risk Management and Insurance, on the other hand, will see a boom in retirements in the coming years, and our program will provide home-grown talent that the state is vying for. I look forward to working with industry leaders to bring new students and initiatives to the University of Baltimore.”
