ESSENCE OF THE CASE
Here are the essential elements in this case:
Palmetto Systems develops security software to protect client networks from unauthorized intrusions. Palmetto's system administrators are developing a Windows 2000 Active Directory group structure from scratch and want to ensure that the design provides the flexibility needed to grant appropriate resource permissions.
Palmetto is organized into four main departments: Software Engineering, Accounting, Sales, and the Executive Committee. Most of the employees in these departments need to share files only with other users in their department.
