Protection of personal information has significant meaning in current information age. Information of crime victim is one of top in value in that divulgence of the information to perpetrators may threat safety of the victim or cause psychological demage as $2^{nd}$ harm if disclosed to public. Legal system protects the information with scattered statutes including Criminal Procedure Act. Existing studies have been limited to discussion of the single statute without integrated approach. Bearing necessity of the approach in mind, as issues of protection system this research proffers too broad subject of eligible inspection of case document, inactive practice of identity management cards and omission of personal information, and inappropriate punishment on the disclosure or divulgence. After reviewing systems of foreign jurisdictions to get useful implications, this paper suggests several measures with two separate aspect of legal provisions and protection practice.
