iPredator Awareness Images


Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.

You and I may not feel it, but we are all at the beginning of the Information Age. Like a double-edged sword, the advantages and disadvantages of Information and Communications Technology are clear. If someone says to me again, “Dr. Nuccitelli, what do you want us to do, turn off the internet?”, I think I will throw my digital devices out the window. For the record, I love cyberspace and grateful for its many benefits. What I don’t understand is how little is being done to teach children and the rest of society about the dark side of cyberspace and the typologies of iPredator.

At times, it feels like society has buried its head in the sand in relationship to internet safety and cyber-attack prevention. It is truly unfortunate that most online users do not pay attention to information security and cyber-attack prevention until they, their loved ones or wallet are cyber attacked. Not only do I think basic internet safety, Digital Citizenship and how to conduct oneself in cyberspace be taught in schools, but it should be a national priority. For now, the best we can do, for those of us who give a damn, is to encourage awareness.

To achieve this aim, pasted below are twenty images and quotes to help think about how to protect yourself, loved ones and business. All the images are free to download, share and edit for educational purposes. For most devices, simply right click on the image and click “save as” to download to your device. No personal information or email address is required to print out or save. I present you my novice graphic design skills and philosophical ramblings.



“Classic bullying attacks a child’s physical attributes, minority status and vulnerabilities. Cyberbullying does the same but uses information technology in a relentless manner to devastate a child.”

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.



“In order to become a cyberstalker, one must either feel rejected, angry, powerful or misunderstood.”

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.



“If you spend too much time in cyberspace without calm, you are bound to project your insecurities and skewed perceptions upon others.”

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.


Online Psychopaths

“If an online user is quick to judge, shameless and defines him or herself as an expert before being honored as one; they are quite possibly a psychopath.”

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.


Dark Side of Cyberspace

“The dark side of cyberspace is the manifestation of, and theatre for, the dark side of human consciousness using information technology as the stage.”

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.


Cyber Attacks

“For those who spend time, energy and resources cyber attacking others, they are either ideologically driven, cloaking their past or a combination of both.”

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.


Cybercriminal Minds

“Cyberspace allows our darkest fantasies to be fueled by the likeminded. Once validated, they are one step closer to becoming reality.”

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.



“The cyberbullied child is at a higher risk of harming themselves or others when primary caregivers are ignorant to the power information technology has upon their psyche.”

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.


Online Predators

“Online predators target children to fulfill deviant fantasies or for child pornography profit. What they fail to realize is that in cyberspace, law enforcement and proactive citizens are waiting to deliver justice.”

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.


Veil of Anonymity

“Given the veil of anonymity is easily worn in cyberspace, accountability evaporates for the online assailant (aka, iPredator).”

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.



“Soon, information will become the most lethal & feared weapon. More valuable than diamonds and intoxicating like morphine.”

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.


Predatory Trolls

“If not dealt with, the predatory type of internet troll will lead judicial systems of all nations to make online defamation a criminal act.”

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.



“The Internet of Things (aka, IoT) is just around the corner with cybercrime and privacy being the two greatest digital hurdles for machine-to-machine communications.”

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.


Online Harassment

“Online harassment is peppered with victim blaming for the target and self-satisfaction for the assailant.”

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.


Cyber Terrorism

“When information becomes the most lethal & feared weapon, cyber terrorism will be a priority for all nations.”

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.



“Different than online surveillance and monitoring, cyberstalking is fear personified for online users, their loved ones and lifestyle.”

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.



“Cyberstealth is not just one of three criteria used to determine if an online user is an iPredator. It is the digital application of Sun Tzu’s “Art of War” reference to deception.”

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.


Information Age Wellness

“Mind, body and spirit use to be the triad for the holistic and wellness approach. Now? Information technology is the proverbial new kid on the block.”

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.


Troll Triad

Troll Triad was originally written to protect myself from character assassination by three adult online users. The Cerebral, Provocateur and Crier archetypes may in fact apply to task functions in all group cyberstalking and internet troll groups.”
