I agree that the new Borg damage is bad.

Here's what works for me.

I'm in a fleet patrol escort.

Use the turret console if you have it as much as possible.

Use torpedo and cannon spreads.

Both of the above will kill the torps.

Use your speed to outrun them. They will go away. Speed is your best defense. A huge mistake many escorts captains make is setting still in battle.

When hit by a plasma torpedo use your hazard emitters to put out the fires as quick as possible.

Use APO to break away from tractor beams or to help escape from oncoming torps.

Use doff buffs that will help your other skills recover faster.

If your in a cruiser and the plasma torps are killing you then you might want to look at your build closely.

It's all pretty standard stuff.
