Risk is the possibility of a negative or undesirable outcome. In the future, a risk has some likelihood between 0% and 100%; it is a possibility, not a certainty. In the past, however, either the risk has materialized and become an outcome or issue or it has not; the likelihood of a risk in the past is either 0% or 100%. (Foundations of Software Testing, p.151)
Risk-based testing involves both mitigation - testing to provide opportunities to reduce the likelihood of defects, especially high-impact defects - and contingency - testing to identify work-arounds to make the defects that do get past us less painful. (Foundations of Software Testing, p.152)
