Government to Put Security of 300 Sites to the test
By Linda
The Ministry of Information and Communication in Korea said yesterday it will conduct periodic monitoring of 300-odd Internet sites to test that security is tight enough to ensure no private information is vulnerable to release.

The MIC said the monitoring would begin from the middle of next month.

The listed Internet sites included adult live broadcasting, online chatting, web-based loan service companies and gambling sites, the MIC said.

Under the law, the government will require online service providers to submit reports on their management of personal information. The listed websites regularly collect private information such as telephone numbers, addresses, identification and banking accounts when they accept new customers.

'The campaign is aimed at promoting a healthy Internet environment,' a spokesperson said.

The MIC said it would take legal action against those violating the private confidentiality rule.
