Internet safety and cyber security are Information Age arenas a business must now address to protect their customers and finances. With the growth of cybercrime, identity theft and online competitor disparagement, American businesses must be vigilant in their cyber security practices.
Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D., C.F.C., a New York State licensed psychologist and certified forensic consultant, has designed the iPredator Probability Inventory-Business (IPI-B.) The IPI-B is a is a 110 question diagnostic, education, assessment and data collection tool designed to assess a business's vulnerability of being targeted, disparaged, slandered, stolen from or infiltrated by cyber criminals or nefarious corporate competitors.
In addition to developing the IPI-B, 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. Interested parties can visit iPredator Inc.’s internet safety website or click on the link provided here.
Just as all iPredator Inc.’s internet safety tools, the IPI-B is based on the Information Age Forensics construct, iPredator, developed by Dr. Nuccitelli. A brief definition of iPredator and the IPI-B is as follows:
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.
iPredator Probability Inventory-Business (IPI-B): The iPredator Probability Inventory-Business is a 110 question diagnostic, education, assessment and data collection tool designed to assess a business's vulnerability of being targeted, disparaged, slandered, stolen from or infiltrated by iPredators or nefarious corporate competitors. Related to cybercrime specific areas, the IPI-B also assesses a business's cyber-security breach potential, digital reputation acumen and capacity to institute Internet safety and cyber security strategies.
A business owner, employee or consultant familiar with the business’s Information and Communications Technology (ICT) health and safety completes the IPI-B. Just as all the IPI Assessment Collection inventories, the IPI-B focuses on the business 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.
