Message from the chairman

   Yoon, Jong In


I am Yoon Jong In, chairman of the Personal Information Protection Commission.

The Personal Information Protection Commission is a central administrative body with the primary role of the protection and supervision of personal information.

The amendment to 'Three data protection laws(the Personal Information Protection Act, the Network Act, and Credit Information Act)' on January 9 brought together personal information protection functions had scattered across ministries and launched the new organization as an integrated supervisory authority.

It's the era of data. As the world competes for global data supremacy, the value and importance of 'personal information' are increasing.

To keep up with current trends, the Commission will establish a safe privacy policy, protect the rights or interests of the people, and support the safe use of data to drive the 'Digital New Deal' era.

In this process, we will always listen to the voice of the people and to create a policy with a balanced perspective.

I ask for your continued interest and support.

Thank you.

Chairman of the Personal Information Protection Commission
Yoon, Jong In
