Some measures I found helpful:

   - Prevent files from running from %temp% and %appdata% using group policy
   - Block office macros on all users with a very tight exception process
   - Prevent cmd and powershell for normal users
   - Administrative users to use a non-administrative account for daily
   interactions (office, web...etc) and use separate account for their
   administrative actions (preferably via a staging server).
