Location Information is an information about a place where an individual exists or had existed. As smart phones are popularized, location information becomes more than simple information about the place. As a result, services using an individual's location information became the trend. However, problems arising from discharging Private Information can damage an individual, because it causes financial and economic loss but also detects individual's location and route directly. In realities, the guide that regulates Location Based Service for administering Private Location Information is insufficient. Therefore, this paper proposes check items, which contain standards of judicial action, financial loss ratings, importance of Private Location Information, and criticality of check lists, during the Private Location Information audit at the level of analysis, design, and management of the Information System, in order to prevent the infringement and disclosure of the Private Location Information. Moreover, the proposed check items were verified for its suitability by the professionals' survey.
