Without using RMS Microsoft Windows Rights Management Services , your not going to be able to hide the folders, but you can keep them out if of the folder if you use OU's for security groups for your Departments.

You could use Access Based Enumeration which allows users to view only the folders they have permission to access. This however requires you to use DFS.

Access Based Enumeration -

Once this is in place, setting permissions as per RobWill's comments will have you set up the way you require.
