    Risk-based testing has become an important part of the tester's strategy in balancing the scope of testing against the time available for testing. Although risk-based methods have been helpful in prioritizing testing, it is important to realize that there are ways we can be fooled by risk. In this presentation, Randall Rice will discuss at least twelve ways that risk assessment and risk-based methods may fail. In addition, Randy will draw parallels to other risk-based industries and discuss the important role of contingencies to be the safety net when the unexpected occurs.
