Tenable Lumin includes features such as Cyber Exposure Score, an objective measure of cyber risk, derived through data science-based measurement of vulnerability data together with threat intelligence and asset criticality. The score is automatically generated through machine learning algorithms which combine the Tenable Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR), for the likelihood of exploitability, with the Tenable Asset Criticality Rating (ACR), for the business criticality of the impacted asset.
Table 5 is a sample worksheet used to record the analysis of the critical components, including their impact on the system, the assigned criticality level, and the rationale for the identified criticality level.
At infrastructure safety management and whole critical infrastructure safety management we need to concentrate to critical items, and therefore, it is necessary to judge the criticality of individual items.
Since the simulation requires a high computational resource, in the present work, the criticality calculations were performed on a Windows server with 80 CPUs.

The last off-site drill was conducted in January 2015." Sahu expects the unit to attain criticality between 6 pm and 10 pm on Sunday."Commercial generation from the second unit will happen in four-six months' time," he said.

"The first phase of the first criticality programme of the power unit made to the AES-2006 design was preceded by a number of activities, in particular, transportation of shrouds with fuel assemblies (FAs) from the fresh fuel storage to the reactor department, as well as an examination to determine if the personnel and equipment are prepared for operations," the statement read.
A system is considered to approach criticality when the parameter [[kappa].sub.1] = [[SIGMA].sup.N.sub.k=i] Pk[[chi].sup.2.sub.k] - [([[SIGMA].sup.N.sub.k=i] Pk[[chi].sub.k]).sup.2] (Pk = [Q.sub.k]/ [[SIGMA].sup.N.sub.n=i] [Q.sub.n] is the energy of kth event normalized by the total energy) converges to [[kappa].sub.1] = 0.070 and at the same time both the entropy in natural time, [S.sub.nt] = [[SIGMA].sup.N.sub.k=i] Pk[[chi].sub.k] In [[chi].sub.k] - ([[SIGMA].sup.N.sub.k=i] Pk[[chi].sub.k]) ln ([[SIGMA].sup.N.sub.k=i] Pk[[chi].sub.k]) and the entropy under time reversal, [S.sub.nt-], satisfy the condition [S.sub.nt], [S.sub.nt-] < [S.sub.u] = (ln2/2) - 1/4, where [S.sub.u] stands for the entropy of a "uniform" distribution in natural time.
