Widespread personal data utilization has led personal data protection to its importance at core, and serious data spill has increased constantly as a result. Though various types of protection systems for data spill have been suggested, all these met failures in detection of personal data when printed out or preventing fatal data exposure without any protections when data spill happens. I propose API-Hook method which detects and controls personal data within printouts, and prevents data leakage through masking on the printed-out data. Also, it is verified if security is guaranteed on the documents containing personal data when implementing. In order to obtain security, it is essential to put more weights on the balance with availability than confidentiality.
