    It is really crazy and scary to think about how these sorts of threats have grown to the level that they are at now. It seems that security is keeping up pretty well, but who is to say what can happen from here.

      Businesses are tied to computers too much. They need a backup plan. For instance, they need a huge paper filing system like they had back in pre-computer days. Does anyone know of anyone that does this? I don't think there are many - if any at all.

        Yes, businesses are really tied to the computer nowadays and they really need to have a backup plan in case there are any threats to the operation. However, the old regime of many files and paperwork is not necessarily needed to backup the data its possible for them to backup whatever work that they have done on the computer at an offsite location plus and there are also a number of devices on which they may backup the data internally.
