All of this has happened before...

For me, one of the best ever sci-fi security themes came in the Battlestar Galactica reboot, which features the human race fighting against robotic Cylon adversaries. In order to keep out viruses, the humans had to keep the computers on their ships primitive and unnetworked—totally logical within the show's universe, and also an excuse to have production design that mirrored the original version of the show from the 1970s. It's a great example of how it's important to get the tech details at least semi-plausible—but even more important to have them make sense in the context of the story you're trying to tell.
