I hope I can describe this properly. I have about 20 sites, all but one on the same VPS. In general, the risk is fairly spread out over two main areas of focus which you could call industries and many sites, but if one of the more important sites goes down, there is a temporary shortage of cash flow and a longer-term impact on search engine engine placements. My experience is that recovery from this kind of loss is very slow and expensive. This has been a difficult year technologically. I changed hosts several times; however, I realize that what is needed is a broad approach to overall security and stability. I need a plan and someone to implement and oversee the plan that includes everything from monitoring domain name registration, site availability, and any drastic slips in search engine positioning. I am prepared to mirror the sites and do whatever is necessary to stay in the running. I would like someone to analyze the most efficient and cost effective way to prevent downtime, disruption, and vulnerabilities in general. For instance, I have ZenCarts which do not have the security measures recommended on the ZC forum to avert hacking. One site was hacked once. All this needs to be studied and implemented. Lest someone think the issue is similar to what is faced by a major corporation, this is not true. I basically run all 20 sites all by myself, sort of a cross between a hobby and profession.
