Risk based Testing

Why do Risk bassed testing?
As a tester, there are certain things you must do. Those things vary depending on the kind of project you’re on, your industry niche, and so on. But no matter what else you do, your job includes finding important problems in the product. Risk is a problem that might happen. The magnitude of a risk is a joint function of the likelihood and impact of the problem—the more likely the problem is to happen, and the more impact it will have if it happens, the higher the risk associated with that problem. Thus, testing is motivated by risk. If you accept this premise, you might well wonder how the term "risk-based testing" is not merely redundant. Isn’t all testing risk-based?
