The aim of my essay is to study the appearance of data protection and freedom of information in the case of the Hungarian Police and national security services. After having presented the theoretical background of data protection, I furthermore analyze the national security services’ practice regarding measures of secret information gathering from the point of view of constitutional guarantees and the violation of privacy. In this part, I shall point to a number of theoretical alternatives and options that do not fully meet the requirement of the constitutional necessity-proportionality test. In the second part of my paper, I examine the enforcement of freedom of information through the comparison of the Hungarian Police and national security services. The twenty-eight requests for data of public interest filed by me served as the basis of my empirical research, which I have examined on the formal level and on the level of content. The results of this examination confirmed my research hypothesis, Hungarian does not have a great tradition in wanting to have access to data of public interest. As the result of my review, I make two de lege ferenda suggestions in my paper. The first is an amendment proposal idea of the effective Criminal Code, inspired by the measures of secret information gathering. The second suggestion is based on a foreign example and its intent is to increase the awareness regarding freedom of information to resolve the apparent civic indifference presented in my paper.
