    This report documents the program and the outcomes of Dagstuhl Seminar 12502 “Securing Critical Infrastructures from Targeted Attacks‿. Through a series of presentations, discussions, and working group meetings, the seminar achieved to shape a clearer picture of what actually constitutes a targeted attack on a critical infrastructure and defined the terms PEST (persistent, sophisticated and targeted) attacks and Critical Cyber Infrastructure in this context. This clearer view will hopefully help the research community and industry to address such threats in a more consistent and holistic way.
