The Pediatric Internet Safety Checklist (PISC) for parents and educators has been released by iPredator Inc. Developed by Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D., C.F.C., a New York State licensed psychologist and certified forensic consultant, the PCSC assesses a child´s cyber attack vulnerabilities and internet safety prowess.
Poughkeepsie, New York (PRWEB) May 19, 2013
Internet safety, internet addiction, cyberbullying and various other Information Age pediatric maladies are becoming commonplace in America and the world over. The children of today not only have to worry about their own online usage, but parents have to be equally vigilant ensuring their child is not being targeted by a nefarious or malevolent online user. To help parents, educators and primary caregivers, Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D., C.F.C., a New York State licensed psychologist and certified forensic consultant, has designed the Pediatric Internet Safety Checklist-PISC.
In addition to developing the PISC, Dr. Nuccitelli designed 25 other internet safety and risk assessment tools specific to the typology, age of online user and organization. Just as all the checklist risk assessments (IISC Collection), the PISC can be purchased in the abridged or full version. Both tools include the exact same assessment instrument, but the full version has a considerable amount of additional cyber attack prevention relevant information used for education and assessment.
To view a sample of the items that are used in all of the internet safety tools, feel free to visit iPredator Inc.´s Cyber Risk List web page by clicking on this link: Cyber Risk List. Interested parties can visit iPredator Inc.´s internet safety website or click on the links provided here.
Pediatric Internet Safety Checklist (PISC): The Pediatric Internet Safety Checklist is a 100-item education, assessment and data collection tool designed for parents, educators and pediatric professionals on pre-pubescent and adolescent Internet safety and responsible Information and Communications Technology (ICT) usage. The PISC queries and explores areas developmentally relevant to an early adolescent, adolescent and young adult, ages 11-21. The goal of the PISC is to educate children on their vulnerability and risk potential of being targeted by an iPredator engaged in cybercrime, cyber stalking, cyber harassment, cyber bullying or trolling for a target to sexually victimize.
In addition to an educational tool, the PISC 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 PISC combines common factors causing children to be cyber bullied, 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. The PISC also addresses the growth of mobile device technology and attempts by iPredators to infiltrate their target´s mobile devices.
Dr. Nuccitelli is quoted stating, “I´ve known for years that someday the professional community would be forced to accept that the Information Age is here and rapidly growing as a double edged sword. Not only do parents and educators have to worry about cyberbullying, cyberstalking and online sexual predation, they now have to look out for what the A.P.A & A.M.A call, Internet Use Disorder.”
