In September 2017, the Republic of Korea government launched the inter-ministerial Comprehensive Measures against Digital Sex Crime to respond to a new kind of violence and set up the response system towards digital sex crime. The government set the Digital Sex Crime Response Team in the Korea Communications Standards Commission to ensure immediate removal and blocking of the video images that have been circulated in April 2018. The Response Team also conducts urgent deliberations. The Korean National Police Agency has established a cyber sexual violence investigation team within the existing cyber investigation team at each regional policy agency to build a system for prompt investigation.
