Sharepoint 2010 permissions best practices

I'm setting up permissions for Sharepoint 2010 and an intranet we are developing.  We have about 50 users or so.  We are migrating a large number of shared documents into a directory structure under a single Document repository with fairly granular read / contribute rights based on the directories within the document store.  If I have a number of security groups in active directory based on department and other commonalities.  Is there a recommended way to apply security? Should I just put my security groups on these directories or go another way with the built in Sharepoint groups?  Thanks for any help, Sharepoint Experts.

I would reccomend using your AD groups to secure access to the files. This way you have a single point of administration where you can easily add/remove members who need access without having to open the sharepoint site.

Also I dont know how big of an IT staff you have but the majority of admins and helpdesk personell will be more familiar with security groups through AD than using the users/groups from within sharepoint.
