It mentions that the data received by each regulator to help detect systemic risk is neither timely nor defined consistently by submitting firms. It discusses impediments to systemic risk mitigation like proprietary and non-standard data which add risk and higher costs to financial firms. Central Counterparty for Data Management (CCDM) is also mentioned as a solution to the problem.
