    "Folder" or directory? What "security" does it need?

    In general, you "secure" directories by assigning appropriate authorities and ownership, as well as granting users access only to the capabilities that they need. If users have excessive authorities, there is no useful "security" that can be applied.

    Without knowing what actions may be allowed and for which users, we can't say how it should be done. Different needs may have different methods.

    There are 3 directories and the third directory is where the files are that all 8 users need RWX access to in order to move the files to other folders or directories.  We just want to lock down the directories so they can't move those.  Groups/GroupsMed/Plans.
    The first directory Groups has PUBLIC and a user with RWX.  The second directory GroupsMed has PUBLIC and another USER with RWX.  The third directory Plans has PUBLIC and 2 other users with RWX.  The users only need to be able to move all files and folders within the Plans directory to other areas.

    If *PUBLIC has *RWX, what is the point of the "USERS" authorities? If you don't want everyone to have some authority, don't grant that authority to *PUBLIC.
