The focus of this paper is the relationship between the level of personal security, generalized confidence, an assessment of the functioning quality of public and state institutions, and assessments of the severity of threats to social security. The paper presents rich empirical data collected in the Altai Territory among the population aged 18 to 79 (n = 620). Clusters that define various combinations of assessments of the generalized confidence and personal security/vulnerability are highlighted; their social characteristics are described. The paper clearly shows that a high level of generalized confidence and personal security contributes to a favorable assessment of the activities of state and public institutions. Consequently, it leads to a more positive vision of risks and threats, differentiated by their nature and probabilistic assessment, which determines further risk management strategies in the region.
