    This paper describes an approach, based on ontologies and expert system technology, for assisting the mitigation of advanced persistent threat (APT) attacks against critical infrastructures. We describe the approach, and a prototype expert system based on it. We delineate a case study, involving an APT against a financial information infrastructure. Finally, we outline some conclusions and recommendations for future work.
