So what should a business continuance plan include?

According to a recent Gartner Group document, a business continuance plan should include: A disaster recovery plan, which specifies an organization's planned strategies for post-failure procedures; a business resumption plan, which specifies a means of maintaining essential services at the crisis location; a business recovery plan, which specifies a means of recovering business functions at an alternate location; and a contingency plan, which specifies a means of dealing with external events that can seriously impact the organization.
