Resources for creating a Disaster Recovery Plan

I am IT manager charged with producing a Disaster Recovery Plan for IT. Can you give me some guidelines on how...

to go about doing this?

Creating a Disaster Recovery Plan can be a very complicated process. I would first recommend performing a risk assessment to understand what applications and systems you have running, how critical they are to the company and who owns them. Once you have all this information in one place, you can start building an effective recovery plan. Disaster Recovery World provides some helpful information and tools to ease this process. SANS also has some information in their Disaster Recovery reading room.
