Business Internet Safety Checklist [BISC]
The Business Internet Safety Checklist [BISC] 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 Business Internet Safety Checklist [BISC] assesses a business’s cyber security practices, cyber attack vulnerabilities and internet safety knowledge. Designed to be multi-functional, the Business Internet Safety Checklist [BISC] is a structured checklist for diagnostics, education, investigation and data collection. The BISC can also be used for compiling evidentiary information for authorities, corporate heads and the legal system if the business is suspected of being cyber attacked by an online assailant[s].
Internet safety and cyber security are issues vital to all American businesses operating in the Information Age. To help American businesses, Dr. Nuccitelli designed the Business Internet Safety Checklist [BISC]. Just as all the checklist risk assessments [IISC Collection], the BISC can be purchased in the abridged or full version. Both tools include the exact same assessment instrument, but the full version includes the scoring key without having to visit the iPredator scoring key page and has a considerable amount of additional internet safety and cyber attack prevention relevant information used for education and assessment. A full version tool purchase also enables the consumer to contact iPredator Inc. for consultation at no cost. To view a sample of the items that are used in internet safety tools, feel free to visit iPredator Inc.’s cyber risk list web page or clicking on this link: Cyber Risk List.

Business Internet Safety Checklist Definition
Business Internet Safety Checklist [BISC]: The Business Internet Safety Checklist [BISC] is a 100-item checklist designed for a business to verify, upgrade or monitor their Information and Communications Technology [ICT] safety and security practices. The BISC is a data collection tool that investigates a business’s vulnerability of being targeted, disparaged, slandered, stolen from or infiltrated by cyber criminals, disgruntled past employees, angry customers or nefarious corporate competitors.
Related to cybercrime specific areas, the BISC focuses the business on their cyber-security breach potential, digital reputation acumen and capacity to institute internet safety and cyber security strategies. With the rapid growth and expansion of Information and Communications Technology [ICT], all businesses are now required to allocate a portion of their operating budget to both cyber security and digital reputation management.
It is recommended to complete the BISC on a quarterly basis if corporate competitors or internal employee sabotage are suspected of engaging in online disparagement and internet defamation to the online reputation or brand[s] of the business. The BISC also addresses the growth of mobile device technology and attempts by iPredators to infiltrate their target’s mobile devices.
Please note that all iPredator Inc. checklist & inventory tools have been formatted and designed to function as data collection, assessment, educational and internet safety monitoring tools. Of the 26 checklists & inventories offered, the IISC tools [14 Checklists] are formatted for verification and initial screening for internet safety, cyber-attack preparedness and Information and Communications Technology [ICT] weaknesses. The IPI tools [12 Inventories] are designed for inquiry, open discussion and inspection of internet safety, cyber-attack preparedness and 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 cyberbully, cyberstalker, cyber harasser, internet troll, cybercriminal, online sexual predator, cyber terrorist, online psychopath or engaged in internet defamation or nefarious cyber deception, they fall within the scope of iPredator. The three criteria used to define an iPredator include:
I. A self-awareness of causing harm to others, directly or indirectly, using ICT. II. The usage of ICT to obtain, tamper with, exchange and deliver harmful information. III. 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 on 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 rely on their capacity to 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.
Information Age Forensics
Information Age Forensics: Information Age Forensics [IAF] is a new field of forensic science, cybercriminal psychology and digital forensics investigation and profiling. IAF recognizes the existence and inevitable growth of the Information Age forensic construct, iPredator. Information Age assailants, aggressors, criminals, trolls, deviants and violently disturbed, iPredators, who use Information and Communications Technology [ICT] in the commission of their criminal, deviant and harmful activities are criminal and psychopathological classifications new to humanity. Whether the offender is a cyberbully, cyberstalker, cyber harasser, internet troll, cybercriminal, online sexual predator, cyber terrorist or engaged in internet defamation or nefarious cyber deception, they fall within the scope of iPredator.
Vital to understanding the theoretical core of iPredator and Information Age Forensics is that iPredators are variants of classical assailants, aggressors, criminals, deviants and nefarious entities. ICT and the Information Age have created a new dimension leading to an entirely new population of humanity engaged in malevolent, harmful and deceptive practices. ICT and cyberspace are not tools used by the aggressor, sociopath, deviant, narcissist or classic criminal, but part of a new generation, that will be permanent fixtures to humanity for centuries to follow.
iPredator and Information Age Forensics accepts the reality that the new dimension of cyberspace is an abstract and artificial environment that offers the “veil of anonymity” to those seeking to engage in deceptive, addictive, nefarious and malevolent online activities.
“Pathological human narcissism transforms the actions of deceit, denial & misrepresentation into a reliable set of tools for those seeking to hide their indiscretions.” Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. iPredator Inc.
