At this stage, computer technology and network technology are developing rapidly, which provides an efficient and convenient information exchange and communication platform for the majority of Internet users. At the same time, the problem of information security under the network background is more prominent. Network personal information resources cover a wide range, and its importance is self-evident. However, driven by interests, personal information network infringement events have occurred in recent years, which results in great losses to network users, and provides more paths for violations and crimes, triggering strong social repercussions and worrying consequences. In the process of using the Internet, the identity information, coordinate position, bank account number, password and other key information of Internet users may be deliberately intercepted or embezzled by some people, resulting in the risk of users’ interests and even personal danger. The problem of personal information network infringement is prominent, which has also become one of the most worried and most need to be solved by the majority of network users. This paper introduces the legal regulation of personal information network infringement, and explores the civil law regulation scheme of personal information network infringement in the new period, so as to ensure the personal information security of Internet users from the perspective of legislation.
