Exorbitant spending on cybersecurity continues; hacking proliferates and continues with the aftermath getting more and more damaging, yet data protection must helplessly continue. This is attributable to a vicious circle and culminates in something akin to a chronic disease, aptly called a “chronic problem of data protection.” The situation is complicated by a tripartite relationship, called the “Law-Security-Ethics Connection,” and exacerbated by a muddled view of the key concepts, notably ethics, privacy, and risk, which hinders a wholesome appreciation of the problem. Given the status quo, an ethics-based framework was perceived and developed aiming to lessen the incidence of hacking or make hacking exasperate to mitigate rather than eradicate because hacker-free cyberspace is unrealistic and impossible. This chapter aims to introduce a remedy successively through an exposition of the symptom and cause of the problem, clearing the muddle, and an illustration of the tools: Ethical Matrix and Hexa-Dimension Metric using the Octopus Saga.
