From: Don’t click: towards an effective anti-phishing training. A comparative literature review

Counter-measure Example Approach
Filtering [20] Analyze all incoming email messages and filter them based on their class: phishing or legitimate
Education of users [41] Train employees to protect them from falling victim to phishing attacks and prevent possible information leaks
Web filtering [42] Analyze browsed websites and identify possible phishing sites in order to warn the user or completely block access to the suspected sites
Website take-downs [44] Take down the phishing site to prevent potential victims from accessing such websites (usually by external parties such as LEAs or hosting service providers)
