I have created folders for storage on the server used by each of a number of
office teams such as "sales", "accounts", "warehouse" and the like. I have
also created corresponding security groups that match those folders.
I set permissions on the folder so that only members of the specified
security group can gain access to each folder. Giving access to the folder is
just a case of making the user a member of that group. Likewise removing
access is just a case of removing their membership of the group. Standard
stuff I imagine for most admins.
So the "Relevant Security Groups" are "Sales" if you want access to the
"Sales" share, "Warehouse" if you want access to the Warehouse share and so
