Rung, S. Ooms, M. Ypma, J. Contributor Hansen, M. (editor) Fischer-Hubner, S. (editor) Camenisch, J. (editor) Publication year 2015 Abstract This paper considers the relationship between privacy and security and, in particular, the traditional “trade-off” paradigm that argues that citizens might be willing to sacrifice some privacy for more security. Academics have long argued against the trade-off paradigm, but these arguments have often fallen on deaf ears. Based on data gathered in a pan-European survey we show that both privacy and security are important to European citizens and that there is no significant correlation between people’s valuation of privacy and security. © IFIP International Federation for Information Processing 2015.
