And your second line of defence is a second backup system that cannot be 
attacked by a Ransomware attack...

For the third, maybe a local backup using a system that does not rely on 
the OS mounting a drive, and then I would probably put #4 as some really 
good granular share, file and folder permissions that limits what any 
one person can do to the system, as that also helps to protect against 
disgruntled employees getting nasty.  A firewall is very far down my 
list. And for it to be of any use in this scenario it really does need 
some form of proxy with a URL blacklist subscription, and you probably 
already get that with the decent anti-virus solution you should have 
already bought by this point...
