The online predator is an adult sexual predator that uses information technology to seek out children driven by criminal and deviant fantasies. Having no internet police or “cyber authorities” to protect children in cyberspace, online predators revel in the freedom to troll for kids at their leisure. As founder of iPredator Inc., Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D. C.F.C., a New York State licensed psychologist and certified forensic consultant, has designed the Online Predator Prevention Checklist.
In addition to developing the OPPC, Dr. Nuccitelli designed 25 other internet safety and risk assessment tools specific to the typology, age of online user and organization. Just as all the checklist risk assessments (IISC Collection), the ISCP 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 cyber attack prevention relevant information used for education and assessment.

Online Predator Prevention Checklist (OPPC): The Online Predator Prevention Checklist is a 100-item data collection & educational tool designed to educate and investigate a child, adolescent or young adult's vulnerability and risk potential of being targeted, sexually solicited and/or victimized by online sexual predators. The OPPC investigates areas developmentally relevant to a child and young adult, ages 11-21, which can increase their levels of vulnerability. These areas include sexuality, intimate partnerships, curiosity and motivation for peer group acceptance.
A parent, primary care giver, educator or pediatric professional completes the OPPC, or if developmentally appropriate, can be completed in tandem with the subject child. In addition to being a data collection & educational tool, the OPPC can also be used as an adjunct to allow teachers, educators and pediatric professionals interview, collect data and engage in a dialogue with children on their Information and Communications Technology (ICT) practices.
The OPPC combines common factors causing children to be sexually solicited, harassed and targeted by online sexual predators. The factors most problematic for children the OPPC explores include inappropriate personal information disclosure, high-risk ICT behaviors and minimal iPredator awareness. Furthermore, the OPPC takes into consideration the reality that most pediatric sexual victimization occurs by offenders they are familiar with, close in age and often manipulated into consenting to sexual activities. The OPPC also addresses the growth of mobile device technology and attempts by iPredators to infiltrate their target’s mobile devices.
