Hudson Valley, New York (PRWEB) May 09, 2013
Cyber crime, Identity Theft and Telecommunications Piracy are three new terms defining criminal activities in the Information Age. To help online users prevent cybercrime victimization, Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D., C.F.C., a New York State licensed psychologist and certified forensic consultant, has designed the Cyber Crime Protection Checklist (CCPC.) In addition to developing the CCPC, Dr. Nuccitelli designed 25 other online risk assessment tools specific to the typology, age of online user and organization.
Just as all the checklist risk assessments (IISC Collection), the CCPC can be purchased in the abridged or full version. Both tools include the exact same assessment instrument, but the full version has a considerable amount of additional cyberbullying and cyber attack prevention relevant information used for education and assessment. Interested parties can visit iPredator Inc.’s internet safety website or click on the links provided here.
Cyber Crime Protection Checklist (CCPC): The Cyber Crime Protection Checklist is a 100-item checklist designed for an Information and Communications Technology user, their loved ones or business to assess their vulnerability and risk potential of being targeted. The CCPC assesses the probability of being disparaged, stolen from or infiltrated by iPredators, cyber terrorist or nefarious corporate competitors engaged in cyber criminal and/or cyber warfare activities.
The CCPC also investigates personal and/or corporate vulnerability of being targeted, disparaged, slandered, stolen from or infiltrated by cyber criminals, disgruntled past employees/customers or nefarious corporate competitors. Areas examined in the CCPC include identity theft potential, personal and financial information protection, ICT safety, cyber security and security breach potential.
It is recommended to complete the CCPC on a quarterly basis and more frequently if known adversaries, corporate competitors or malevolent entities are suspected of engaging in possible cyber-attacks or personal/corporate disparagement. It is also strongly encouraged for businesses, professional & organizational structures and public figures to ensure their colleagues, associates and sub-contractors practice the same level of cybercrime protection. The CCPC also addresses the growth of mobile device technology and attempts by cyber criminals to infiltrate their target’s mobile devices.
