Quickbooks Online - local backup

I have used Quickbooks Desktop for many years.

I am considering switching to Quickbooks Online but I am concerned about data loss.

I practice the 3-2-1 backup strategy but switching to Quickbooks Online seems to reduce redundancies and exposes us to data loss and/or corruption. 

Additionally, cyberattack potential increases everyday.


What in house options exist to create local backups for my peace of mind?
