ADM 101 - Building a Permission Architecture
Scott Brewster

Before you begin building your environment in SharePoint, you should have a very good understanding of who will be using it, the roles and the responsibilities. Scott will show you how to craft the permission architecture that will correspond to your site and information architecture to have as light of a management burden as possible. He will also show you how to create workarounds for managing complex permissions, how to document this architecture, and what do to for existing environments that have gotten ugly. Very few people have the luxury of starting over from scratch, so that is the bigger problem to tackle.
