Pediatric Cyber Attack Test
Cyber Attack Risk Assessment
Pediatric Internet Safety Checklist
The Pediatric Internet Safety Checklist [PISC] is an internet safety tool and cyber attack risk assessment authored by Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D., a New York State licensed psychologist, certified forensic consultant and iPredator Inc. founder. The Pediatric Internet Safety Checklist [PISC] assesses a child’s high-risk online activities, cyber attack vulnerabilities and internet safety prowess. Designed to be multi-functional, the Pediatric Internet Safety Checklist [PISC] is a structured checklist for diagnostics, education, investigation and data collection. The PISC can also be used for compiling evidentiary information for authorities, Internet Service Providers and the legal system if the child is being cyber attacked by an online assailant[s].
The Pediatric Internet Safety Checklist [PISC] for parents and educators has been released by iPredator Inc. and developed by Dr. Nuccitelli for assessing a child’s cyber attack vulnerabilities and internet safety prowess. Internet safety, internet addiction, cyberbullying and various other Information Age pediatric maladies are becoming commonplace in America and the world over.
The children of today not only have to worry about their own online usage, but parents have to be equally vigilant ensuring their child is not being targeted by a nefarious or malevolent online user. To help parents, educators and primary caregivers, Dr. Nuccitelli created the Pediatric Internet Safety Checklist-PISC.

Pediatric Internet Safety Checklist [PISC]
Pediatric Internet Safety Checklist [PISC]: The Pediatric Internet Safety Checklist is a 100-item education, assessment and data collection tool designed for parents, educators and pediatric professionals on pre-pubescent and adolescent internet safety and responsible Information and Communications Technology [ICT] usage. The PISC queries and explores areas developmentally relevant to an early adolescent, adolescent and young adult, ages 11-21. The goal of the PISC is to educate children on their vulnerability and risk potential of being targeted by an iPredator engaged in cybercrime, cyberstalking, cyber harassment, cyberbullying or trolling for a target to sexually victimize.
In addition to an educational tool, the PISC has been designed to allow parents, teachers, educators and pediatric professionals to interview, collect data and engage in a dialogue with children on their Information and Communications Technology [ICT] practices. The PISC combines common factors causing children to be cyberbullied, harassed and targeted by online sexual predators. The factors most problematic for children include inappropriate personal information disclosure, high-risk ICT behaviors and minimal iPredator awareness. The PISC also addresses the growth of mobile device technology and attempts by iPredators to infiltrate their target’s mobile devices.
Dr. Nuccitelli is quoted stating, “I’ve known for years that someday the professional community would be forced to accept that the Information Age is here and rapidly growing as a double-edged sword. Not only do parents and educators have to worry about cyberbullying, cyberstalking and online sexual predation, they now have to look out for what the A.P.A & A.M.A call, Internet Use Disorder.”
Cyber Attack Risk Assessment & Educational Tool
Dr. Nuccitelli is quoted saying, “It amazes me how some teens are able to both survive and thrive in the Information Age. Cyberbullying, cyberstalking, online sexual predation and cyber harassment await them every day if they let down their guard in cyberspace. Not only support, encourage and educate your children on internet safety, but tell them how impressed with their capacity to stay safe you are.”
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 cyberstalker, cyber harasser, cybercriminal, online sexual predator, internet troll, cyber terrorist, cyberbully, 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, 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 rely upon 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 habitually 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.
“Malevolent in intent, iPredators rely on their capacity to deceive others using information technology 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.” Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. 
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.
Unlike classic deception used by traditional criminals and deviants, online 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 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. When profiling or conducting an investigation of an iPredator, their level of Cyberstealth complexity, digital footprint, victim preferences, ICT skills and behavioral patterns are used to identify who they are.

“The Information Age technocentric concept of being “connected” is a paradox of disconnection causing us to lose control of our instinctual drives for social cohesion, allegiance and selflessness. As our dependency upon Information and Communications Technology (ICT) grows, spreading throughout our collective human consciousness, the less we care for our neighbors and the more we delude ourselves into thinking that online connections are far more valuable than reality based relationships.” Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.
