iPredator Probability Inventory – Psychologist
The iPredator Probability Inventory – Psychologist [IPI-PSY] is an internet safety tool and cyber attack risk assessment authored by Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D., a New York State licensed psychologist, forensic psychology consultant and iPredator Inc. founder. The iPredator Probability Inventory-Psychologist [IPI-PSY] assesses a client’s online risk activities, cyber attack vulnerabilities and internet safety prowess. Designed to be multi-functional, the iPredator Probability Inventory-Psychologist [IPI-PSY] is a structured inventory for diagnostics, education, investigation and data collection.
The IPI-PSY can also be used for compiling evidentiary information for authorities, law enforcement, Internet Service Providers and the legal system if the client is being cyber attacked by an online assailant[s]. Developed by Dr. Nuccitelli, the IPI-PSY was designed to help psychologists and mental health professionals assess a client’s internet safety practices and online vulnerabilities. Internet safety and cyber attack prevention are areas vital to all online users and organizations.
Given psychologists and mental health professionals’ work with clients who suffer from a variety of psychological, psychiatric and developmental issues, it is vital for them to be adept at helping clients manage distress suffered from their online activities. The IPI-PSY is a 330 question diagnostic and screening tool for behavioral healthcare professionals regarding a client’s online risk potential.

iPredator Probability Inventory – Psychologist
iPredator Probability Inventory-Psychologist [IPI-PSY]: The iPredator Probability Inventory-Psychologist is a 330 question data collection, educational and diagnostic tool for psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers and behavioral healthcare professionals regarding a child, adolescent or adult’s Information and Communications Technology [ICT] preparedness, probability and vulnerability of being cyberbullied, cyberstalked, sexually solicited, stolen from and/or targeted by iPredators. The IPI-PSY can also be used as an adjunct to individual and group therapy, prevention education training, an adjunct to intake assessments and behavioral healthcare training. The IPI-PSY is designed for children, adolescents and adults ages 9+.
Upon completion of the IPI-PSY, the IPI score ranges from 0-330 and represents the preparedness, vulnerability and risk potential of the subject being targeted by an iPredator and/or possibly being an iPredator. Just as all the IPI Assessment Collection inventories, the IPI-PSY focuses on an online user’s relationship to ICT, their knowledge base of malevolent and nefarious users, environmental aspects influencing their Information and Communications Technology [ICT] activities and their practice of the behavioral actions necessary for Internet safety and preparedness if cyber attacked.
The IPI-PSY questions are formatted to investigate the knowledge base, environmental aspects and behavioral actions necessary for internet safety and preparedness if cyber attacked. The IPI-PSY is a 330-question inventory segmented into 11 categories relevant to all online users and can be conducted all at once or used in parts focusing on the behavioral healthcare professional goals or areas of assessment. The IPI-PSY also addresses the growth of mobile device technology and attempts by iPredators to infiltrate their target’s mobile devices.

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.

“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.
