Dear iPredator Visitor,
Internet Safety & iPredator Inc. themed apparel and merchandise is available in our Zazzle Store. Please feel free to visit our store that offers our iPredator logos and Internet Safety images designed by Dr. Nuccitelli on t-shirts, hats, mugs, and various other merchandise to purchase. Many of the images posted on this site are offered on apparel and merchandise in our store. iPredator Inc. receives 10% commission on all store purchases.
The proceeds will go towards iPredator Inc.’s goal to one day pay for a full sized highway billboard that will have a digital citizenship slogan and their new cyber crime fighter character for children, Cyber Tyger. Cyber Tyger is in the process of being digitized, trademarked and hopes to one day become a partner with McGruff the crime dog educating young children on Internet Safety, Cyber Bullying and Online Predators. As Cyber Tyger so proudly growls “Take A MegaByte Out Of Cybercrime!!!” Whether you decide to visit our store or not, always be cautious online and remember the definition of iPredator because they lurk in cyberspace. The definition is as follows:
iPredator: A child, adult, group or nation who, directly or indirectly, engages in the exploitation, victimization, 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, either gender and not bound by economic status, race or national heritage.
iPredator is a global term used to distinguish all online users who engage in criminal, deviant or abusive behaviors using Information and Communications Technology. Whether the offender is a cyber bully, cyber stalker, cyber criminal, online sexual predator, Internet troll or cyber terrorist, they fall within the scope of iPredator. There are three criteria used to define an iPredator including:
I. A self-awareness of causing harm using Information and Communications Technology. II. The intermittent to frequent usage of Information and Communications Technology to obtain, exchange and deliver harmful information. III. A general understanding of Cyberstealth used to profile, identify, locate, stalk and engage a target.
When an offender profile includes these three characteristics, they meet the definition of iPredator. A fourth criterion, not included in the triad defining an iPredator, is what Dr. Nuccitelli has termed iPredator Victim Intuition (IVI) and reserved for seasoned iPredators. IVI is the aptitude to sense a target’s online vulnerabilities, weaknesses and technological limitations increasing their success with minimal ramifications. iPredators, through practice and learning, develop a sense and/or skill of being able to experience an intuition to know what online user will be a successful target.
