What is scenario testing in Operational Resilience?

In operational resilience, scenario testing is a crucial practice for assessing a firm's ability to withstand and recover from disruptions that could impact its important business services. It involves conducting a range of severe but plausible disruption scenarios and testing the firm's response and recovery plans against them.

Why is scenario testing important?

In today's fast-paced and ever-changing business landscape, it is essential to be prepared for any potential disruptions. Scenario testing allows firms to identify potential weaknesses and vulnerabilities in their systems and processes before they occur in real life. By testing with different scenarios, businesses can proactively address any issues and make necessary improvements to ensure their operations can continue without major disruptions.

Scenario testing involves creating a hypothetical situation that could potentially impact the firm's operations. This could include natural disasters, cyber attacks, system failures, or any other unexpected events.
