Dear Yiheyis,
One option is ORA, which is available for free from
ORA is a risk assessment tool for locating individuals or groups that are
potential risks given social, knowledge, task and resource network
information. ORA examines these networks and finds those people, who
represent a risk to the overall system. Individuals are risks, e.g., if
their removal from the network would debilitate it (the critical employee)
or if they were to feed false information to others they could create havoc
(the rumor monger).

Cheers, Jana
