Total Compliance Tracking has announced a tool to help companies smoothly transition from PCI DSS 3.2.1 to version 4.0.

The transition to 4.0 will be a seamless process for TCT clients. Teams can pick up where they left off without any significant hiccups, delays or retooling.”
— Adam Goslin, TCT Founder

ROCHESTER, MI, UNITED STATES, November 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Total Compliance Tracking (TCT) has announced a tool to help companies smoothly transition from PCI DSS 3.2.1 to version 4.0.

The official update to PCI DSS v4.0 is slated for March 2022, and PCI-compliant organizations are beginning to develop their transition plans. For many organizations, the switch to the updated version is expected to be lengthy and onerous. Compliance teams will need to manually collect all of their evidence and apply it file by file to the new version of PCI.

TCT’s compliance management software, TCT Portal, is equipped with a tool called Operational Mode. TCT anticipates that Operational Mode will allow organizations to make the transition to PCI 4.0 without the time investment of a manual approach.

According to TCT, Operational Mode maintains collected evidence from the previous year’s compliance cycle. TCT Portal can prepopulate it into the line item requirements for the next year. When PCI 4.0 is released, The software will be able to repopulate evidence that was collected under an Operational Mode v3.2.1 Assessment and map them into the corresponding line items for v4.0.

“Operational Mode lets you go in with the confidence of knowing that you’re essentially completely up to date with everything you’re supposed to be doing, in a timely fashion,” TCT founder Adam Goslin said. “The transition to 4.0 will be a seamless process for TCT clients. Teams can pick up where they left off without any significant hiccups, delays or retooling.”

The upcoming update to version 4.0 has many organizations anxious, because few people in the industry will be familiar with the reconfigured standard. “Instead of staring at a sea of requirements on Day One and trying to make sense of them, TCT Portal’s Operational Mode will make it clear which items have already been completed,” Goslin said. “TCT users can filter out the items that were fulfilled under 3.2.1 and hone in on the ones that are still outstanding under 4.0.”

Operational Mode was first introduced to TCT Portal in 2015.
