What's the best G Suite backup policy, why it has to be backed up?

Organizations backup G Suite data to prevent data loss due to Ransomware and accidental deletions. While Google provides high service uptime and protects G Suite data from hardware failures, the data can still be lost due to cyber attacks and user errors.

IDC and Gartner recommend using a thrid party backup service in order to protect the cloud data from malware and deletions.
