You will need a large fast, USB3 will be fine, external hard drive. If your storage drive fails you lose everything, so you need to back that up too. Use carbon copy cloner to clone to an identical drive after any file editing or adding raw files, It will simply scan and only add new and changed files. Don't erase your cards until files are on both drives. The other option is a raid with built in redundancy, that minimises the risk, but it can still screw up or be stolen. Yet another option is a web based backup service. I've seen so many time machine backups screwed and not restoring I wouldn't personally trust them. Not an easy choice to make unless your photos have minimal value to you.
