iPredator Probability Inventory – Cyberbully
The iPredator Probability Inventory-Cyberbully [IPI-CB] 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-Cyberbully [IPI-CB] assesses a child’s online risk activities, cyber-attack vulnerabilities and internet safety prowess. Designed to be multi-functional, the IPI-CB is a structured inventory for diagnostics, education, investigation and data collection. The IPI-CB can also be used for compiling evidentiary information for school officials, law enforcement, Internet Service Providers and the legal system if the child is being suspected of being cyberbullied.
Developed by Dr. Nuccitelli, the IPI-CB helps parents, educators and pediatric professionals investigate a child’s vulnerability of being cyberbullied. Cyberbullying is a pediatric social issue impacting thousands of children, families and educators in the United States. Unlike classic bullying that used to be restricted to school grounds and neighborhoods, cyberbullying is 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year for a targeted child.

iPredator Probability Inventory – Cyberbully
iPredator Probability Inventory-Cyberbully [IPI-CB]: The iPredator Probability Inventory-Cyberbully is a 110-question diagnostic, education, assessment and data collection tool designed to investigate a child or adolescent’s online preparedness, vulnerability and risk potential for being cyberbullied and/or harassed. Just as all the IPI Assessment Collection inventories, the IPI-CB focuses on the child’s relationship to ICT, their knowledge base of malevolent and nefarious users, environmental aspects influencing their ICT activities and their practice of the behavioral actions necessary for internet safety and preparedness if cyber attacked.
The IPI-CB also explores parental and support system cyberbully protection and prevention tactics employed by loved ones and school officials. A parent, primary caregiver, educator or pediatric professional completes the IPI-CB for children and adolescents ages 6-17.
Once completed, the IPI score, ranging from 0-110, represents the preparedness, vulnerability and risk potential of the child becoming a cyberbully target, cyberbully abuser or cyberbully bystander. The IPI-CB can be used as both a cyberbullying prevention tool for children and a data collection instrument for parents and educators investigating cyberbullying episodes involving their child or student. The IPI-CB also addresses the growth of mobile device technology and attempts by iPredators 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.”
