Parent Cyber Safety Checklist



The Parent Cyber Safety Checklist [PCSC] 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 Parent Cyber Safety Checklist [PCSC] assesses a child’s high-risk online activities, cyber attack vulnerabilities and internet safety prowess. Designed to be multi-functional, the Parent Cyber Safety Checklist [PCSC] is a structured checklist for diagnostics, education, investigation and data collection. The PCSC can also be used for compiling evidentiary information for authorities, school officials and the legal system if the child is suspected of being cyber attacked by an online assailant.

An exhaustive cyber safety risk assessment for parents has been released by iPredator Inc. Developed by Dr. Nuccitelli, this cyber risk assessment assists parents, primary caregivers and helps assess the child’s cyber attack vulnerabilities and internet safety prowess. Cyber safety for parents is one of the new and rapidly growing issues parents must efficiently coördinate raising children of the Information Age. Cyberbullying, online sexual predation and cyber harassment are just a few examples of the dark side children have to manage. Not just parents, but also all of society is presented with a new form of communication that is not governed or monitored for nefarious and malevolent online activities. As founder of iPredator Inc., Dr. Nuccitelli has designed the Parent Cyber Safety Checklist [PCSC]. In addition to developing the PCSC, Dr. Nuccitelli designed 25 other internet safety and risk assessment tools specific to the typology, age of online user and organization.

Parent Cyber Safety Checklist


Parent Cyber Safety Checklist [PCSC]: The Parent Cyber Safety Checklist is a 330-item education, assessment and data collection checklist designed for parents and primary caregivers on pre-pubescent and adolescent internet safety and responsible Information and Communications Technology [ICT] usage. The PCSC is constructed for parents and primary caregivers to verify and confirm their child’s Internet safety and cyber security practices are valid in preventing a cyber-attack by an iPredator.

The PCSC also helps 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 PCSC 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 PCSC 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. Based on a parent’s internet safety familial endeavors, the PCSC can also be used along with their child and the entire family during family discussions on cyber security. The PCSC also addresses the growth of mobile device technology and attempts by iPredators to infiltrate their target’s mobile devices.

Dr. Nuccitelli has stated, “Everything I’ve designed and authored has been fueled by one mission and one mission alone. Knowing I live in the Information Age and there’s members of society, of all ages, who use ICT to harm and defile children freely without fear of punishment, is an accelerant that will motivate me for the next four decades.”

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.”
