New to Alfresco

Hey all,

I'm new to Alfresco, but I've read several chapters of a book which was handed to me.

I've been tasked to secure an Alfresco environment which currently seems to have read access for everyone.  I need to modify the environment to allow our employees somewhere between full control-read only, and external users minimal access to only things we specify.  We don't want clients seeing each other's data… 

Coming from a Interwoven TeamSite background, I immediately think of using groups and roles.  Alfresco seems to be based on the same principals, but the individual who tasked me with this feels there is a different way (based on a video he saw).

Here is the video:

Am I on the right track of creating groups and roles for each company including my company and setting the permissions based on the groups OR is there a way to keep sites public, but hide them from external clients?

Thanks in advance for the advice!

Brian
