Research activities of Crisis Management Center at Matej Bel University are focused at development and tuning of crisis scenarios for different critical events. Specialized tools are used for crisis management scenario workflow design and simulations. For complex analysis and information security crisis management, complex multilevel multisilo information security model was designed and described in the paper. Equipment and procedures used in current security measures defending organizations and states against advanced persistent threats and attacks from the cyberspace are attached to each level and silo of the model. This enables simulation of crisis management scenarios in case of cyberattack as precise as possible to real situations of critical architecture attacks, which can have dramatic consequences as outages or complete shutdown of energy grids, destroying factories, key data destructions and other catastrophic events.
