Abstract

For the recent personal information leaks, it is urgent that the protection provisions for personal information and the countermeasures for personal information leakages be established. As the importance of personal information security grows, the government has enacted related laws and regulations and published the guidelines for managing personal information. However, unlike the government's goals and wishes, each laws and regulations only intensify confusion. The structural defects are found in the privacy laws by the comparative analysis of related laws and regulations. This paper presents the integrated suggestions for the distributed laws and regulations of personal information in Korea. For the laws and regulations causing confusion, integrated guideline is suggested according to the analysis of Sarbanes-Oxley Act in U.S.
