The cyberbullying, online sexual predator and cyber forensic psychological construct, iPredator, has been updated and released, at no cost, for review, download and dissemination. NYS licensed psychologist, forensic psychology consultant, founder of iPredator Inc. and author of the theoretical criminology construct, iPredator, has updated his theorem for public discourse.

Cyber Forensic Construct, iPredator, Updated

Cyberbullying, cyberstalking, online sexual predation, cybercrime and cyber terrorism are new societal evils rapidly expanding in the Information Age. As the United States and all industrialized nations, grapple with these highly destructive and inflammatory sociological plagues, thousands of children, adults, places of business, and soon nations, are being targeted, accosted and victimized. The abstract and artificial dimension, called cyberspace, is increasingly becoming a dangerous environment infected by those engaged in nefarious and malevolent online activities.

iPredator: An Information Age Forensics Construct

iPredator: A person, group or nation who, directly or indirectly, engages in exploitation, victimization, coercion, stalking, theft or disparagement of others 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 or gender and are not bound by economic status, race, religion or national heritage. iPredator is a global term used to distinguish anyone who engages in criminal, coercive, deviant or abusive behaviors using ICT. Central to the construct is the premise that Information Age criminals, deviants and the violently disturbed are psychopathological classifications new to humanity.

Whether the offender is a cyberbully, cyberstalker, cyber harasser, internet troll, cybercriminal, online sexual predator, cyber terrorist, online child pornography consumer/distributor or engaged in internet defamation or nefarious online deception, they fall within the scope of iPredator. The three criteria used to define an iPredator include:

  • A self-awareness of causing harm to others, directly or indirectly, using ICT.
  • The usage of ICT to obtain, tamper with, exchange and deliver harmful information.
  • A general understanding of Cyberstealth used to engage in criminal or deviant activities or to profile, identify, locate, stalk and engage a target.

Unlike human predators prior to the Information Age, iPredators include the multitude of benefits offered by Information and Communications Technology [ICT]. These assistances include exchange of information over long distances, rapidity of information exchanged and the seemingly infinite access to data available. Malevolent in intent, iPredators rely on their capacity to deceive others using ICT in the abstract and artificial electronic universe known as cyberspace. Therefore, as the internet naturally offers all ICT users anonymity, if they decide, iPredators actively design online profiles and diversionary tactics to remain undetected and untraceable.

Cyberstealth, a sub-tenet of iPredator, is a covert method by which iPredators attempt to establish and sustain complete anonymity while they engage in ICT activities planning their next assault, investigating innovative surveillance technologies or researching the social profiles of their next target. Concurrent with the concept of Cyberstealth is iPredator Victim Intuition [IVI]. An iPredator’s IVI is their aptitude to sense a target’s ODDOR [Offline Distress Dictates Online Response], online & offline vulnerabilities, psychological weaknesses, technological limitations, increasing their success of a cyber-attack with minimal ramifications.

iPredator: The Dark Side of Cyberspace

As stated by Dr. Nuccitelli, “From 2009 to the present and for the next 3-4 decades, along with thousands of hours engaging in exhaustive research, I’ve come to realize how little I know about the new criminal, deviant and assailant I call iPredator. What I’m confident in professing is that the Information Age has spawned a sinister creature that uses the “veil of anonymity” in cyberspace to harm others without fear of identification or punishment. My new life’s mission is to one day plant the seed of fear in all those who seek to harm children and online users using Information and Communications Technology.”

Internet Safety Guide for Parents by Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.

Internet Safety Guide for Parents

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.

A back to school internet safety guide for parents is now available for parents, educators and pediatric professionals. Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D. C.F.C., a NYS licensed psychologist, forensic psychology consultant and founder of the Information Age forensics company, iPredator Inc., has updated and made available, at no cost, his internet safety guide for parents.

As America prepares for the new school year, online sexual predators, cyber criminals and serial cyberbullies are also designing their cyber attack strategies. The Information Age has many benefits to children and all humanity, but it is vital to identify and prevent the malevolent and nefarious elements that exist in cyberspace. Most susceptible to online victimization are children who are discouraged, distressed and monitored by inactive parents and caregivers ignorant to internet safety practices.

New York State licensed psychologist and forensic psychology consultant, Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D., has updated and made available, at no cost, his 2013-2014 “Internet Safety Guide for Parents” web page article to read, print or download. Dr. Nuccitelli’s packet was created for parents, educators and primary caregivers to use as a guideline to helping children reduce their chances of being victimized by cyberbullies, cyberstalkers, cyber criminals and online sexual predators.

In addition to being available at no cost, no personal information is required for download. Interested parties can visit iPredator Inc.’s website or by clicking on this link for direct access: iPredator-Parents Internet Safety Guide Link

Internet Safety Guide for Parents

Themed throughout all of iPredator Inc.’s prevention education information is Dr. Nuccitelli’s construct, iPredator. The definition is as follows:

iPredator: A person, group or nation who, directly or indirectly, engages in exploitation, victimization, coercion, stalking, theft or disparagement of others 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 or gender and are not bound by economic status, race, religion or national heritage.

iPredator is a global term used to distinguish anyone who engages in criminal, coercive, deviant or abusive behaviors using ICT. Central to the construct is the premise that Information Age criminals, deviants and the violently disturbed are psychopathological classifications new to humanity. Whether the offender is a cyberbully, cyberstalker, cyber harasser, cyber criminal, online sexual predator, cyber terrorist or engaged in internet defamation or nefarious cyber deception, they fall within the scope of iPredator.

According to iPredator Inc.’s founder, Dr. Michael Nuccitelli, I wonder if historians will one day, centuries from now, look back upon us and conclude we were a culture blind to the hidden dark side of cyberspace.”

By virtue of the proverbial “cloak of anonymity” conveniently provided by ICT, iPredators troll cyberspace with a distinct advantage in their ability to represent themselves in any way they choose. Furthermore, they can secretly stalk their prey by tracking the potential victim’s path from an undetectable, safe distance. Not only can iPredators become anyone they choose to be, they can also become anyone their victim may subconsciously desire them to be.

Internet Safety for Kids

The repercussions of the unrestricted latitude of iPredators will be catastrophic for not only online users, but for society, and potentially, the world over. Therefore, before it is too late, society must re-examine the phenomenon of “social networking” via technology. Humanity must become educated in the Dark Psychology of ICT and learn to respect the mighty potential for harm that lurks beneath its surface. Society has now become ripe for the birth and growth of a new human predator advanced in all things Internet. This deviant’s name is iPredator.

Information Age Parable Released by Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.

Information Age Parable Released

by

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.

dr.-internet-safety-michael-nuccitelli-psy.d.-ipredator-ipredator-inc.-new-york-internet-safety

A cautionary Information Age parable has been released, at no cost, to download by iPredator Inc. Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D., C.F.C., a New York State licensed psychologist, forensic psychology consultant and author of the Information Age Forensics construct, iPredator, has made available a parable about the character, Evil, who has written a letter thanking humanity for creating a destructive and deceptive cyberspace opening a portal for his return.

Updated Information Age Parable

Online sexual predation, cyberstalking, cyberbullying and pathological cyber deception are all Information Age social issues that are rapidly expanding and causing harm to millions of online users. Although Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and the internet are young in age, the nefarious and malevolent elements seeking to victimize the innocent are avid enthusiasts. It is easy to recognize the many benefits information technology provides, but the detriments and pain caused to online victims continues, with reckless abandonment, and no known end in sight.

Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D., C.F.C., a New York State licensed psychologist, forensic psychology consultant and author of the Information Age Forensics construct, iPredator, has made available, at no cost, his parable titled, “I am iPredator: A Letter to Information Age Humanity.” The short story is a parable about the character, Evil (aka iPredator), who has written a letter thanking humanity for creating a destructive and deceptive cyberspace, causing a portal to open in cyberspace, allowing for his return.

A Letter to Information Age Humanity

As stated by Dr. Nuccitelli, My short story “I am iPredator” is a parable not to be taken literally. I’m hoping it will someday encourage humanity to think about their “disconnected” online behavior and begin practicing decency and respect towards others. Cyberspace and ICT are inventions of elegance and should not be treated as a disposable commodity. If we don’t work to make cyberspace a safe environment, the children of the future are in grave danger.

Dr. Nuccitelli enjoys and fully supports the advancement and growth of Information and Communications Technology (ICT.) What he does not approve of is the use and abuse of ICT to victimize, disparage and steal from others. It is for this reason that “I am iPredator” was written hoping to alert humanity to the destructive trajectory starting to accelerate.

The parable, as well as all iPredator Inc. products and services are formatted using the iPredator construct. The iPredator definition is as follows and the webpage link to read, print or PDF download, requiring no personal information, is provided here: “I am iPredator: A Letter to Information Age Humanity”

iPredator

iPredator: A person, group or nation who, directly or indirectly, engages in exploitation, victimization, coercion, stalking, theft or disparagement of others 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 or gender and are not bound by economic status, race, religion or national heritage. iPredator is a global term used to distinguish anyone who engages in criminal, coercive, deviant or abusive behaviors using ICT. Central to the construct is the premise that Information Age criminals, deviants and the violently disturbed are psychopathological classifications new to humanity.

Whether the offender is a cyberbully, cyberstalker, cyber harasser, internet troll, cybercriminal, online sexual predator, cyber terrorist, online child pornography consumer/distributor or engaged in internet defamation or nefarious online deception, they fall within the scope of iPredator. The three criteria used to define an iPredator include:

  • A self-awareness of causing harm to others, directly or indirectly, using ICT.
  • The usage of ICT to obtain, tamper with, exchange and deliver harmful information.
  • A general understanding of Cyberstealth used to engage in criminal or deviant activities or to profile, identify, locate, stalk and engage a target.

Unlike human predators prior to the Information Age, iPredators include the multitude of benefits offered by Information and Communications Technology [ICT]. These assistances include exchange of information over long distances, rapidity of information exchanged and the seemingly infinite access to data available. Malevolent in intent, iPredators rely on their capacity to deceive others using ICT in the abstract and artificial electronic universe known as cyberspace. Therefore, as the internet naturally offers all ICT users anonymity, if they decide, iPredators actively design online profiles and diversionary tactics to remain undetected and untraceable.

Cyberstealth, a sub-tenet of iPredator, is a covert method by which iPredators attempt to establish and sustain complete anonymity while they engage in ICT activities planning their next assault, investigating innovative surveillance technologies or researching the social profiles of their next target. Concurrent with the concept of Cyberstealth is iPredator Victim Intuition [IVI]. An iPredator’s IVI is their aptitude to sense a target’s ODDOR [Offline Distress Dictates Online Response], online & offline vulnerabilities, psychological weaknesses, technological limitations, increasing their success of a cyber-attack with minimal ramifications.

An iPredator’s IVI is their aptitude to sense a target’s ODDOR (Offline Distress Dictates Online Response), online & offline vulnerabilities, psychological weaknesses, technological limitations, increasing their success of a cyber-attack with minimal ramifications.

iPredator Bridge Definition

iPredator Bridge: iPredator Bridge is a theoretical tenet of iPredator representing the psychological, perceptual & behavioral trajectory of people who use Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to harm others. Similar to the iPredator, they are motivated by personal convictions, greed, power, control, narcissism or psychopathology. Different from the iPredator, they have yet to fully engage in criminal/deviant activities using ICT or use complex perceptual distortions to validate the harm they cause. iPredator Bridge investigates why some people draw near to this nefarious and malevolent realm and either proceed in their maladaptive trajectory or cease and desist.

Hidden in cyberspace, and through ICT, they contemplate the benefits and detriments, proceed, and then continue a path where their cognitive and perceptual processes are focused upon directly or indirectly harming others. For those who cross this proverbial bridge, they enter a world where their choices are increasingly governed by criminal, deviant, immoral and maladaptive processes.

Although it is assumed all humanity, has residing deep in their psyche, the potential & Dark Psychology for behaving in harmful and malevolent ways they rarely or never activate, ICT and cyberspace offers a direct connection and psychological route to the dark side. Just as ICT and cyberspace is incredibly pro-social and beneficial to humanity, these same technological advancements can lead humanity to diabolical and sinister endeavors. The iPredator Bridge is a symbolic representation of the approach, route and initial crossing into the realm of the iPredator. In a rudimentary and abstract way, it is posited that cyberspace, ICT and all future technological advancements, related to information technology, is an extension of the mind and the instinctual drives of the collective brain to replicate itself outside a human organism. Related to this postulate are the theoretical tenets of Carl Jung (1875-1961) and his construct of the Collective Unconscious.

“The collective unconscious – so far as we can say anything about it at all – appears to consist of mythological motifs or primordial images, for which reason the myths of all nations are its real exponents. In fact, the whole of mythology could be taken as a sort of projection of the collective unconscious… We can therefore study the collective unconscious in two ways, either in mythology or in the analysis of the individual.” (Carl Jung – The Structure & Dynamics of the Psyche)

Given that humanity is at the beginning of the Information Age, the motivating factors that lead some people to cross over into engaging in asocial behaviors using ICT cannot be explained. The concept of iPredator and iPredator Bridge construct assumes that ICT has unknown effects upon the mind and influence some to engage in destructive and self-destructive patterns. The creation of ICT and cyberspace is equivalent to the philosophical and psychological societal awe that was created when an astronaut took his first step upon the moon. Just as Neil Armstrong (8/5/30 – 8/25/12) stepped into a new celestial territory, humanity is doing the same here on Earth. This new territory is the abstract and artificial electronic universe known as cyberspace.

An online deception & cyber narcissism paper has been released, at no cost, to download by iPredator Inc. Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D., a New York State licensed psychologist, forensic psychology consultant and author of the Information Age Forensics construct, iPredator, has made available internet safety information discussing online deception, cyber narcissism and how online assailants use the “veil of anonymity” in cyberspace to victimize other online users.

Online Deception & Cyber Narcissism

Online deception and the ease of being fraudulent in cyberspace is both a reality of the Information Age and a tactic online assailant’s use to cyber attack others without being identified and/or brought to justice. Although Information and Communications Technology (ICT) is relatively new, the nefarious and malevolent elements seeking to victimize the innocent are avid enthusiasts. It is easy to recognize the many benefits information technology provides, but the detriments and pain caused to online victims continues by those who use online deception as a tool for personal and financial gain.

“The level and breath of public redemption for crimes and misdemeanors is equal to the severity of the offender’s Narcissistic Personality Disorder.” 

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. (2013)

Cyberstealth: Online Deception

Cyberstealth is a concept formulated along with iPredator and is a term used to define a method and/or strategy by which iPredators use Information and Communications Technology (ICT) , if they so choose, to establish and sustain complete anonymity while they troll and stalk a target. Cyberstealth is a methodology entrenched in Information Age Deception or also called cyber deception. Given the Internet inherently affords everyone anonymity, Cyberstealth used by iPredators range from negligible to highly complex and multi-faceted. The rationale for using “stealth” in the suffix of this term, serves to remind ICT users the primary intent fueling iPredators. This intent is to hide their identity by designing false online profiles, identities, covert tactics and methods to ensure their identities remain concealed reducing their probability of identification, apprehension and punishment.

 If someone is a narcissist and proven to practice deception, there admission and acts of contrition that follows speak to the severity of their Narcissistic Personality Disorder.” 

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. (2013)

Unlike classic deception used by traditional criminals and deviants, Information Age Deception completely relies on the anonymity and “veil of invisibility” available to all ICT users. The primary difference between Information Age Deception and Cyberstealth are the activities iPredators and ICT users engage in. In this writer’s construct, Cyberstealth is reserved for iPredators who actively plan a strategy that have criminal, deviant and harmful implications to targeted victims. Information Age Deception includes all forms of Cyberstealth, but also includes deceptive practices that do not have elements of crime, defiance or harm against others.

CYBERSTEALTH

Cyberstealth is a concept formulated along with iPredator and is a term used to define a method and/or strategy by which iPredators use Information and Communications Technology (ICT) , if they so choose, to establish and sustain complete anonymity while they troll and stalk a target. Cyberstealth is a methodology entrenched in Information Age Deception or also called cyber deception. Given the Internet inherently affords everyone anonymity, Cyberstealth used by iPredators range from negligible to highly complex and multi-faceted. The rationale for using “stealth” in the suffix of this term, serves to remind ICT users the primary intent fueling iPredators. This intent is to hide their identity by designing false online profiles, identities, covert tactics and methods to ensure their identities remain concealed reducing their probability of identification, apprehension and punishment.

“It is not “who” is the biggest liar, but “who” is the biggest narcissist? For the answer, look for their acts of contrition.”  Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. (2013)

Unlike classic deception used by traditional criminals and deviants, Information Age Deception completely relies on the anonymity and “veil of invisibility” available to all ICT users. The primary difference between Information Age Deception and Cyberstealth are the activities iPredators and ICT users engage in. In this writer’s construct, Cyberstealth is reserved for iPredators who actively plan a strategy that have criminal, deviant and harmful implications to targeted victims. Information Age Deception includes all forms of Cyberstealth, but also includes deceptive practices that do not have elements of crime, defiance or harm against others. An example of Information Age Deception, not included in Cyberstealth, would be a young man who joins an online dating service and publishes in his dating profile that he if 6’0 feet tall when he is really 5’9.

Information Age Deception

Information Age Deception does not require an ICT user to engage in nefarious, deviant or malevolent activities. Although all forms of deception are problematic, Information Age Deception can be as subtle of what many call a “white lie.” Another difference is when iPredators use Cyberstealth to hide their identity from victims. In general, iPredators use Cyberstealth when their actions involve illegal activities and hiding their identity is paramount to reduce being identified, apprehended and prosecuted. ICT users who evaluate their odds of being identified, develop tactics and strategies to minimize identification are motivated by criminal, deviant & harmful causes are iPredators using Cyberstealth.

Cybercrime, Identity Theft & Fraud

As the Internet naturally offers all ICT users anonymity if they decide, iPredators actively design online profiles and diversionary tactics to remain undetected and untraceable. Cyberstealth is a covert method by which iPredators are able to establish and sustain complete anonymity while they engage in ICT activities planning their next assault, investigating innovative surveillance technologies or researching the social profiles of their next target. Concurrent with the concept of Cyberstealth is IVI or iPredator Victim Intuition. By using Cyberstealth, an iPredator’s IVI is the aptitude to sense a target’s online vulnerabilities, weaknesses and technological limitations increasing their success with minimal ramifications. iPredators rely on the multitude of benefits offered by ICT. These assistances include exchange of information over long distances, rapidity of information exchanged and the seemingly infinite access to data available. Malevolent in intent, iPredators rely on their capacity to deceive others in the abstract electronic universe known as cyberspace.

Online Sexual Predators Use Cyberstealth Habitually

The iPredator practices Cyberstealth using multiple covert strategies. In fact, the third criteria used to define an iPredator includes a general understanding of Cyberstealth used to engage in criminal or deviant acts or to profile, identify, locate, stalk and engage a target. Also lying upon a continuum of expertise, iPredators are assessed as being advanced in their Cyberstealth practices as opposed to a haphazard approach of targeting a victim without attempting to hide their identity. Often times, cyber bullies, ex-partners, ex-employees, angry or self-righteous online users, Internet trolls, organized groups with political, religious, moralistic causes, child molesters, pedophiles and highly narcissistic online users do not attempt to hide their identities. Cyberstealth is a strategy reserved for iPredators who seek to hide their identities online.

Online sexual predator prevention and internet safety tips have been released for download, at no cost, by iPredator Inc. Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D., a New York State licensed psychologist, forensic psychology consultant and author of the Information Age Forensics construct, iPredator, has made available an updated and expanded version of his online sexual predator prevention tips for parents, educators and pediatric professionals.

The online sexual predator profile has been described using many different names, but can easily be defined as an adult online user who uses Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to locate and target a child to sexually solicit. As information technology continues to expand with few methods to monitor and identify nefarious and malevolent online activities, the rates of children being victimized continue.

Online Predator Prevention

To help parents, educators and pediatric professionals insulate children from online victimization, Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D., C.F.C., a New York State licensed psychologist, forensic psychology consultant and author of the Information Age Forensics construct, iPredator, has made available, at no cost, an updated and expanded version of his “Online Sexual Predator Prevention Tips” article. Accessing the information does not require having to provide personal information or an email address and interested visitors can visit the site at any time or click on the link here for immediate access: Online Sexual Predator Prevention Tips.

Once at the webpage, simply click on the print button in the social share bar. Central to the tips and all iPredator Inc. products and services is Dr. Nuccitelli’s Information Age Forensics construct called iPredator. The formal definition of iPredator is as follows:

iPredator

iPredator: A person, group or nation who, directly or indirectly, engages in exploitation, victimization, coercion, stalking, theft or disparagement of others 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 or gender and are not bound by economic status, race, religion or national heritage. iPredator is a global term used to distinguish anyone who engages in criminal, coercive, deviant or abusive behaviors using ICT. Central to the construct is the premise that Information Age criminals, deviants and the violently disturbed are psychopathological classifications new to humanity.

Whether the offender is a cyberbully, cyberstalker, cyber harasser, internet troll, cybercriminal, online sexual predator, cyber terrorist, online child pornography consumer/distributor or engaged in internet defamation or nefarious online deception, they fall within the scope of iPredator. The three criteria used to define an iPredator include:

  • A self-awareness of causing harm to others, directly or indirectly, using ICT.
  • The usage of ICT to obtain, tamper with, exchange and deliver harmful information.
  • A general understanding of Cyberstealth used to engage in criminal or deviant activities or to profile, identify, locate, stalk and engage a target.

Unlike human predators prior to the Information Age, iPredators include the multitude of benefits offered by Information and Communications Technology [ICT]. These assistances include exchange of information over long distances, rapidity of information exchanged and the seemingly infinite access to data available. Malevolent in intent, iPredators rely on their capacity to deceive others using ICT in the abstract and artificial electronic universe known as cyberspace. Therefore, as the internet naturally offers all ICT users anonymity, if they decide, iPredators actively design online profiles and diversionary tactics to remain undetected and untraceable.

Cyberstealth, a sub-tenet of iPredator, is a covert method by which iPredators attempt to establish and sustain complete anonymity while they engage in ICT activities planning their next assault, investigating innovative surveillance technologies or researching the social profiles of their next target. Concurrent with the concept of Cyberstealth is iPredator Victim Intuition [IVI]. An iPredator’s IVI is their aptitude to sense a target’s ODDOR [Offline Distress Dictates Online Response], online & offline vulnerabilities, psychological weaknesses, technological limitations, increasing their success of a cyber-attack with minimal ramifications.
