As the recent global financial crisis revealed, the financial industry needs better, more comprehensive stress testing. An integral part of a firm's risk management approach, stress tests can give a clearer view about dangerous scenarios often described as a "perfect storm" or "black swan" event. They can also be used as part of branding and marketing.

It also describes risk architecture and data management considerations.
