Are there practical answers that actually work in the real world with

1. Employ clueful staff
2. Make their operating environment (procedures etc.) best able
to exploit their clue
In the general case this is a people issue. Sure there are piles of
whizzbang technical solutions that address individual problems (some of
which your clueful staff might even think of themselves), but in the final
analysis, having people with clue architect, develop and operate your
systems is far more important than anything CapEx will buy you alone.
Note it is not difficult to envisage how this attack could have been
far far worse with a few code changes...
