Cyberstalker Identification Interview
The Cyberstalker Identification Interview [CSII] is an internet safety tool and cyberstalker identification assessment authored by Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D., a New York State licensed psychologist, certified forensic consultant and iPredator Inc. founder. The Cyberstalker Identification Interview [CSII] helps an online user to assess his/her online risk activities, cyber attack vulnerabilities and the identity of a cyberstalker if being targeted.
Designed to be multi-functional, the Cyberstalker Identification Interview [CSII] is a structured identification interview for education, investigation and data collection. The CSII can also be used for compiling evidentiary information for law enforcement, Internet Service Providers and the legal system if the online user is seeking to identify a cyberstalker.
A comprehensive cyberstalker identification tool has been released for purchase by iPredator Inc. Developed by Dr. Nuccitelli, the Cyber Stalker Identification Interview [CSII] helps online users identify unknown cyberstalkers or compile the relevant data if the identity of the cyberstalker is known. As author of the CSII, Dr. Nuccitelli is available to assist CSII users before and after they have purchased the tool at no cost.
A cyberstalker is a criminal, deviant, severely disturbed or disgruntled ex-partner that uses Information and Communications Technology to taunt, harm, manipulate and control other online users. To prevent cyberstalking victimization and identification if the assailant is unknown, Dr. Nuccitelli created the Cyber Stalker Identification Interview [CSII.]

Cyber Stalker Identification Interview [CSII]
Cyber Stalker Identification Interview [CSII]: The Cyber Stalker Identification Interview [CSII] is a 75 question diagnostic and data collection tool designed to meet a three-fold purpose. The three functions include A. Assess the vulnerability and preparedness of a child, adolescent, adult, business or public figure of being cyber stalked, internet trolled or cyber harassed. B. Assist law enforcement, legal professionals, parents, adults and businesses in collecting data on the identity of an unknown cyber stalker. C. Assess the extent and skills of the cyber stalker’s tactics and the target’s Information and Communications Technology [ICT] weaknesses and high-risk behaviors the cyber stalker is attacking.
For purposes of the target vulnerability estimate, the CSII has been formatted to investigate aspects of cyberstalking, cyber harassment and cyberbullying if the target is a minor. Provided below is a sample of the CSII questions. Based on the rationale for completing the CSII, the person conducting or completing the interview is advised to interpret the questions as follows: I. If the cyber stalker is known or his/her identity is suspected, the questions are straight forward and formatted for this event. II. If the identity of the cyberstalker is unknown, the questions should be premised with, “If the cyber stalker were known,” and then read the question and note responses accordingly.

The IPI tools [12 Inventories] are designed for inquiry, open discussion and inspection of internet safety, cyber-attack preparedness and Information and Communications Technology [ICT] vulnerabilities.
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 method 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 make sure 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.
