In this paper we perform cost-effectiveness analysis of strategies for monitoring the organizational social network in order to trap the attacker’s profiles. We analyze attack strategies with different levels of knowledge on the employed monitoring strategies. The results demonstrate the efficacy in detecting the less sophisticated attackers and slowing down attackers that deliberately avoid the profiles being monitored.
