    Abstract: There is disclosed a method for mitigating phishing risk to a recipient of a phishing electronic document. The method comprises receiving (302) the phishing electronic document (108) intended for the recipient (104) and identifying (304) parameters in the phishing electronic document. The parameters are applied (306) to a customised risk profile of the recipient to generate a risk index. The risk index is then compared (308) to a specified risk threshold. A phishing alert based on the comparison is generated (310) and provided (312) to the recipient along with the electronic document.
