Backup team maps

Is there a recommend way to backup team maps? For example, what if a volunteer with Manager access deletes all the maps or moves all the maps to their personal account? We can export all of the maps and save them off line, i was wondering if that is best practice or is there another best practice?

    Many teams do export their maps as a GeoJSON and store the files elsewhere for safe keeping. It's not a perfect solution- it's a static file that doesn't reflect any changes made after to the map after it is exported- but it does serve the purpose of providing backups in case maps are accidentally deleted or moved to individual accounts.
