Hudson Valley, New York (PRWEB) June 06, 2013
The online sexual predator engages in the criminal and deviant acts of sextortion and internet predation, which are two of the most egregious forms of Information Age social issues. Although adults can be targeted, the primary victim pool, for online sexual predators, is ignorant, distressed or discouraged children. Unfortunately, American society continues to minimize online sexual predation’s rapid growth and the severe psychological devastation caused to the child victim.
Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D., C.F.C., a New York State licensed psychologist and certified forensic consultant, has designed the iPredator Probability Inventory-Internet Predator (IPI-IP.) The iPredator Probability Inventory-Internet Predator is a 110-question data collection, diagnostic and educational tool designed to assess a child, adolescent or young adult’s preparedness, vulnerability and risk potential of being targeted, sexually solicited and/or victimized by online sexual predators.
In addition to developing the IPI-IP, 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 checklist page by clicking on this link: Cyber Risk List.

Just as all iPredator Inc.’s internet safety tools, the IPI-IP is based on the Information Age Forensics construct, iPredator, developed by Dr. Nuccitelli. A brief definition of the IPI-IP and iPredator is as follows:
The iPredator Probability Inventory-Internet Predator is a 110-question data collection, diagnostic and educational tool designed to assess a child, adolescent or young adult’s preparedness, vulnerability and risk potential of being targeted, sexually solicited and/or victimized by online sexual predators. A parent, primary caregiver, school official or pediatric professional completes the IPI-IP. In addition to being a diagnostic tool and inventory, the IPI-IP can also be used as an adjunct to a mental health and/or forensic assessment.
The IPI-IP is designed for children, adolescents and young adults ages 6-21. Just as all the IPI Assessment Collection inventories, the IPI-IP focuses on the child'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.
iPredator: A child, adult, group or nation who, directly or indirectly, engages in exploitation, victimization, stalking, theft or disparagement using Information and Communications Technology (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, internet defamation and cyber deception.
As Dr. Nuccitelli states, “The hours involved in creating the 26 internet safety and cyber attack prevention tools surpassed the time it took me to complete my doctoral dissertation threefold. I also know Information Age victimization will have me conducting research for decades to come. iPredator Inc.’s mission is to strike the proverbial match igniting a national discussion and intervention plan and how to stop the societal disconnection.”
