The most important decision about your site and content security in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 is to decide how to categorize your users and what permission levels to assign.
There are several default SharePoint groups that are intended to help you categorize your users based on the types of actions they need to perform, but you might have unique requirements or other ways of looking at sets of users.
