The IPI-CS is a 110-question diagnostic and education tool designed to examine an online user’s cyberstalking risks & internet safety practices.
Poughkeepsie, NY (PRWEB) June 04, 2013
Cyberstalking is the use of the internet and Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to taunt, tease, disparage and monitor a target victim(s). Unlike cyber harassment and cyberbullying, cyberstalking requires a direct or implied physical threat within the harmful information being disseminated.
Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D., C.F.C., a New York State licensed psychologist and certified forensic consultant, has designed the iPredator Probability Inventory-Cyber Stalking (IPI-CS.) The IPI-CS is a 110-question diagnostic and education tool designed to examine an online user’s cyberstalking risks & internet safety practices.
In addition to developing the IPI-CS, Dr. Nuccitelli designed 25 other internet safety and risk assessment tools specific to the typology, age of online user and organization. To view a sample of the items that are used in all of the internet safety tools, feel free to visit iPredator Inc.’s Cyber Risk List web page by clicking on this link: Cyber Risk List.

Just as all iPredator Inc.’s internet safety tools, the IPI-CS is based on the Information Age Forensics construct, iPredator, developed by Dr. Nuccitelli. A brief definition of the IPI-CS and iPredator is as follows:
iPredator Probability Inventory-Cyber Stalking (IPI-CS): The iPredator Probability Inventory- Cyber Stalking is a 110-question diagnostic, education, assessment and data collection tool designed to assess the probability and preparedness of a young adult, adult or public figure of being cyber stalked. In addition to cyber stalking, the IPI-CS investigates the subject’s potential of being cyber harassed by an ex-partner, ex-associate, fan, nefarious corporate entity or pathologically driven Information and Communications Technology user.
Just as all the IPI Assessment Collection inventories, the IPI-CS focuses on the subject's relationship to ICT, their knowledge base of malevolent and nefarious users, environmental aspects influencing their Information and Communications Technology (ICT) activities and their practice of the behavioral actions necessary for Internet safety and preparedness if cyber attacked. For purposes of the probability estimate the IPI-CS has been designed to assess, this inventory combines aspects of cyber stalking, cyber harassment and habitual online personal disparagement.
An adult, public figure or associate of a public figure age 18+ completes the IPI-CS. Once completed, the IPI score, ranging from 0-110, represents the inventory respondent's or the subject being queried preparedness, vulnerability and risk potential of being targeted by an iPredator engaged in cybercrime, cyber stalking, cyber harassment or cyber bullying if the subject being queried is a minor.
The IPI-CS can be used as both a cyber stalking prevention tool and data collection instrument if the Information and Communications Technology user or business is presently being cyber stalked. The IPI-CS also addresses the growth of mobile device technology and attempts by iPredators to infiltrate their target’s mobile devices.
iPredator: A child, adult, group or nation who, directly or indirectly, engages in exploitation, victimization, stalking, theft or disparagement of others using ICT. iPredators are driven by deviant fantasies, desires for power and control, retribution, religious fanaticism, political reprisal, psychiatric illness, perceptual distortions, peer acceptance or personal and financial gain. iPredators can be any age, either gender and not bound by economic status, race or national heritage. iPredator is a global term including cyberbullying, cyberstalking, cyber harassment, cybercrime, online sexual predation, cyber terrorism and internet defamation.
