I've been trading for nearly a year now and I've only seen a couple of major outages on Betfair. I check the following website before I start each session and again if I notice any strange behaviour in Geekstoy. https://status.developer.betfair.com/

It hasn't been a significant problem in my experience but I still don't use big stakes so my risk isn't large yet and in the very long term I'd expect to break even anyway minus commission. The only way I can think of to greatly reduce your risk is to have the free Betdaq version of Geekstoy / Betangel running to be ready to instantly hedge your risk there but you'd have to be very disciplined to ensure it was ready for the rare occasion you'd need it.
