(2) A bank holding company must retain data using an electronic format that allows timely retrieval of data for analysis, validation, reporting, and disclosure purposes.

The stress testing must include a consideration of how economic cycles, especially downturns, affect risk-based capital requirements (including migration across rating grades and segments and the credit risk mitigation benefits of double default treatment).
