Things to Consider while Performing Risk Based Testing

In this appproach testing activities are prioritized and focused on the areas of the software application that have the highest potential for failure or negative impact on the end-users or the business.

What is Risk Based Testing?

Identify and prioritize the risks associated with the software application based on their potential impact on the end-users. This will help to focus the testing efforts on the areas with the highest risk first.

Identify & prioritize the risks


Determine the scope of testing and the areas of the software application that require the most attention based on the identified risks.

Define the scope of testing


For example, if security is a high-risk area, then security testing techniques such as penetration testing or vulnerability scanning may be required.

Select the appropriate testing techniques


Decide on the level of testing required for each risk. For example, high-risk areas may require more extensive testing than low-risk areas.

Determine the level of testing


Ensure that the testing results meet these criteria. This will help to ensure that the software application meets the required quality standards.

Define the acceptance criteria


Develop a testing strategy that outlines the testing approach, test cases, and testing techniques to be used to mitigate the identified risks.

Define the testing strategy


Monitor and review the testing results to ensure that the testing efforts are effective in mitigating the identified risks. This will help to identify issues in the testing approach.

Monitor the testing results
