Cybercrime Protection Checklist
The Cybercrime Protection Checklist [CCPC] 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 Cybercrime Protection Checklist [CCPC] assesses a business or adult’s high-risk online activities, cyber-attack vulnerabilities and internet safety prowess.
Designed to be multi-functional, the Cybercrime Protection Checklist [CCPC] is a structured checklist for diagnostics, education, investigation and data collection. The CCPC can also be used for compiling evidentiary information for authorities, Internet Service Providers and the legal system if the online user or business is being cyber attacked by an online assailant[s].
Developed by Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D., the structured checklist for online users and businesses is used for cybercrime prevention, diagnostics, education and investigation. Cybercrime, Identity Theft and Telecommunications Piracy are three new terms defining criminal activities in the Information Age. In addition to developing the CCPC, Dr. Nuccitelli designed 25 other online risk assessment tools specific to the typology, age of online user and organization.
Cybercrime Protection Checklist
Cybercrime Protection Checklist [CCPC]: The Cybercrime Protection Checklist is a 100-item checklist designed for an Information and Communications Technology user, their loved ones or business to assess their vulnerability and risk potential of being targeted. The CCPC assesses the probability of being disparaged, stolen from or infiltrated by iPredators, cyber terrorist or nefarious corporate competitors engaged in cybercriminal and/or cyber warfare activities.
The CCPC also investigates personal and/or corporate vulnerability of being targeted, disparaged, slandered, stolen from or infiltrated by cybercriminals, disgruntled past employees/customers or nefarious corporate competitors. Areas examined in the CCPC include identity theft potential, personal and financial information protection, ICT safety, cyber security and security breach potential.
It is recommended to complete the CCPC on a quarterly basis and more often if known adversaries, corporate competitors or malevolent entities are suspected of engaging in possible cyber-attacks or personal/corporate disparagement. It is also strongly encouraged for businesses, professional & organizational structures and public figures to make sure their colleagues, associates and sub-contractors practice the same level of cybercrime protection. The CCPC also addresses the growth of mobile device technology and attempts by cyber criminals to infiltrate their target’s mobile devices.
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.”
