iP3141 Homeland Security Initiative

iP3141 is a national homeland security & cyber terrorism prevention initiative developed by New York State licensed psychologist and forensic consultant, Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. As part of iP3141, he has designed a template that will reduce the probability of a cyber-terrorist attack, increase homeland security information dissemination speed and ignite an Information Age educational movement. Provided is a brief overview of iP3141.

iP3141 is a national homeland security & cyber terrorism prevention initiative developed by New York State licensed psychologist and author of the Information Age iPredator construct, Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D. In light of growing reports America is at risk for a cyber terrorism attack and what authorities have termed Cyber Pearl Harbor, Dr. Nuccitelli has designed a plan that will reduce the probability of a cyber-terrorist attack, increase homeland security information dissemination speed and ignite an Information Age educational movement in the United States.

iP3141 is a national initiative to establish an educational, homeland security and iPredator professional and public sector network to service, educate & monitor Americans of the 3141 counties and county equivalents in the 50 States and the District of Columbia. The National Conference of State Legislatures defines cyber terrorism as the use of Information and Communications Technology by terrorist groups and individuals to further their agenda.

This can include use of ICT to organize and execute attacks against networks, computer systems and telecommunications infrastructures or for exchanging information or making threats electronically. Examples are hacking into computer systems, introducing viruses to vulnerable networks, web site defacing, denial-of-service attacks, or terrorist threats made via electronic communication.

According to the FBI, cyber terrorism is any “premeditated, politically motivated attack against information, computer systems, computer programs and data which results in violence against non-combatant targets by sub-national groups or clandestine agents.” As the author of a new technological predator construct called iPredator, cyberstalkers, cyber terrorist, cyber criminals and the severely disturbed are just a few of the typologies included in his theory that victimize others using Information and Communications Technology (ICT). Also included is how Information Age society has drastically changed, becoming more isolated and disconnected leading to a paradigm shift in violence, crime and deviance.

Cyber Terrorism

Cyber terrorism has multiple definitions and applies to a variety of cyber attack intricacies that may involve one online assailant or many. As a typology of iPredator, Cyber Terrorism is defined as the cognitive, affective, behavioral and perceptual factors of terrorist groups or their agents, who use of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to impair, harm or destroy another group of individuals. Cyber terrorism is different from activism, hacktivism and cybercrime.

More specifically, cyber terrorism attempts to interrupt, destroy or exploit another group or nation’s ICT vulnerabilities to adversely affect their critical infrastructure. The targets cyber terrorists mostly attack are civilian populations and governments. The target is not one individual, but groups, communities, regions and nations. Furthermore, cyber terrorism, as an iPredator typology, requires the terrorist group or their agents to meet three criteria as follows:

  • 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.

Although these three factors are broad and could easily include activists, hacktivists and cybercriminals, cyber terrorism focuses on causing harm to others by adversely affecting a target group’s ICT networks and critical infrastructure. As humanity becomes more reliant upon ICT, ICT networks and critical infrastructure are synonymous. Like the classic definition of pre-Information Age terrorism, cyber terrorists target civilian populations or those not engaged in active combat. As stated, cyber terrorists use ICT to harm civilian and commercial systems, which directly or indirectly creates an instant or substantial risk to national security.

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 or researching the social profiles of their next target. From a nationalistic perspective, industrialized nations must now allocate increasing amounts of time, money, work force and strategic planning on cyber terrorism prevention.

Needing to be addressed is the growing concerns of homeland security, cyber terrorism and cyber warfare all due to social media and the speed and magnitude of Information and Communications Technology. In addition to cyber threats to our national security, it is fair to assume iPredators and iPredator groups will become willing activists attempting to access and design larger and more deadly forms of cyber aggression. Social science experts and educators have attempted to enlighten and warn the global community, but their impact to date pales in comparison to the wrath and inevitable growth of the threat of iPredator and the growing number of iPredator groups.

In addition to assisting citizens, iPredator Inc.’s mission is to initiate a nationally sustained educational & awareness campaign and Dr. Nuccitelli’s plan of what he has called the United States iP3141 National Network. Once implemented, the mission of the iP3141 Network is to increase awareness of the benefits and dangers of Information and Communications Technology (ICT), decrease rates of cybercrime and human online victimization, educate citizens on homeland security and significantly increase education & awareness of pediatric online users via an ICT educational curriculum covering iPredator issues.

There are 3,141 counties and county equivalents in the 50 States and the District of Columbia. (United States Geological Survey) The letter “i” in iPredator stands for Information and Communications Technology. Cyber Terrorism is one typology of the construct iPredator. Hence, iP3141 is the tentative name of Dr. Nuccitelli’s initiative. A brief description of Information and Communications Technology is as follows:

Information and Communications Technology (ICT): Defined as “the role of unified communications and the integration of telecommunications (telephone lines and wireless signals), computers, middleware as well as necessary software, storage- and audio-visual systems, which enable users to create, access, store, transmit, and manipulate information. In other words, ICT consists of IT as well as telecommunication, broadcast media, all types of audio and video processing and transmission and network based control and monitoring functions.” (Wikipedia)

i3141 General  Template

Within each county, county equivalent and the United States, there would be the following:

  • 3 Appointed Professional Officials: The county district attorney, the chief and/or appointed law enforcement official, and the superintendent of schools or an appointed superintendent representative.
  • 1 Elected Government Official: The county mayor or elected official that reports to the state elected governor.
  • 4 Appointed County Private Citizens: 1 private citizen representing county media, 1 private citizen representing all county educators, 1 private citizen representing county homeland security and 1 private citizen with expertise and/or trained in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and a proposed United States Library of ICT (to be developed.)
  • 1 Federal iP3141 Network Website: 1 federally funded and managed central ICT website & social networking service for county appointed officials & citizens to obtain all ICT information related to homeland security, state and federal laws, educational curriculum and the United States Library of ICT (to be developed.)
  • United States Library of ICT: The United States Library of ICT would be a central database of all past, present and future Information and Communications Technology (ICT) intelligence, news and trends available to all United States citizens and those seeking to prevent cyber terrorism and online victimization. The six areas of focus would be on Education, Law and Law Enforcement, Homeland Security, Social Sciences, ICT and ICT Research & Development.

The iP3141 plan is a work in progress and requires local, state and federal assistance. In 2013, iPredator Inc. is a small business and seeking proactive citizens and organizations of America to assist them in their endeavor to encourage a national discussion. In addition to the obvious benefits to Americans, Dr. Nuccitelli predicts it would help create new employment opportunities, expand homeland security awareness regarding cyber terrorism and cyber security threats, create a centralized forum for exchange of ICT, inspire educated consumerism for ecommerce & m-commerce and place the United States in the forefront globally in ICT & ICT safety. Given that the rapid expansion of ICT is both happening and inevitable, Dr. Nuccitelli would like to see the United States initiates steps to develop a resilient Cyber Ecosystem.

18 U.S. Code § 2332 – Criminal Penalties

Note to Reader: To anyone who reads this brief introduction to iP3141, feel free to contact iPredator Inc. with ideas and insights on how to encourage a national discussion and steps to establishing the iP3141 Network, a United States Library of ICT and encouraging members of Capital Hill to implement this network swiftly. As the iP3141 would be funded by local, state & federal agencies, the potential for creating employment opportunities would be tremendous.

As Dr. Nuccitelli continues to research these areas, he comes across numerous websites and services offering information & services relevant to ICT education, safety and protection. The goal is to create one centralized network that hosts all these forums, and most importantly, protect the welfare and future of American children. The mind & ICT will be relevant in understanding the motivations of all criminals, deviants and the severely disturbed. All future alleged mass killers and violent offenders would be assessed and judged by their criminal actions, their past and their ICT usage. Dr. Nuccitelli strongly believes ICT acts as an accelerant to the “fantasy world” and malevolent plans common to all cyber terrorist, mass murderers and those planning violence against humanity.

Given it is estimated there is 2.4 billion active Internet users globally and quickly growing, it falls to reason to assume cyber predators and classic human predators will use ICT to plan, document and research their nefarious and malevolent activities.Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D., C.F.C. (2012)

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 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.

“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. (2014)

According to the FBI, cyber terrorism is any “premeditated, politically motivated attack against information, computer systems, computer programs and data which result in violence against non-combatant targets by sub-national groups or clandestine agents.”
