The PACT project has questioned the trade-off relationship by investigating perceptions of security and privacy and respective preferences therefore. This chapter presents the findings of the PACT travel survey with reference to the findings of other related and/or similar surveys. It provides an overview of the recent history of closed-circuit television systems deployment in Greece. The chapter discusses legal perceptions with regard to privacy in public and security as well as the constitutional and regulatory framework. It focuses on historical experiences and factors, such as the recent political history marked by dictatorships, which have fed the distrustful attitudes between citizens and the state-public institutions and reproduced a 'negative surveillance culture'. The chapter also presents the tolerant attitudes of Greeks towards private surveillance systems. Finally, it examines to what extent risks, uncertainties and fears in an environment of economic and social crisis are mirrored in privacy perceptions and attitudes and how these relate to the approach to the security–privacy trade-off.
