A stress test that requires assessment of scenarios and circumstances that would render a business unviable, thereby identifying potential business vulnerabilities.

Reverse stress-testing starts from an outcome of business failure, and identifies circumstances where this might occur.

This is different to general stress and scenario testing, which tests for outcomes arising from changes in circumstances.
