Backups are 1/2 of the puzzle
As an independent consultant, I had off-site systems dedicated to evening backups of my various accounts, a single Dell computer dedicated to account and perfoming remote night backup of server to station.  This saved one 501C3 account that got destroyed by cryppolocker in 2014.  I recovered and restored 98% of serve-workstation data in 3 hours.  The other half of my argument is that backups are great AND when you NEED THEM at 2am, they will often FAIL or be applied wrong because, well, I am not thinking square at 2am either.  TEST TEST and test them to make SURE you have (a) reliable comprehensive backups that (b) WORK when you need them too.  Otherwise, your best efforts are doomed to fail at a crucial time.  "People never plan to fail - but they often fail to plan." - George S. Patton
