It's best practice to place people/users into Groups. Then, assign permissions to the groups.

Right-click the folder.
Pick Security tab.
Pick Edit button.
Under Group or user names list, if user/group missing, pick Add. Pick OK to return to prior dialog.
Under Permissions, put desired checkmarks.

Note that when assigning permissions, Deny takes precedence over Allow.  For that reason, best practice is if someone does not need permission to a folder, you should simply remove their name rather than add a Deny, and create an allow Security group.  If there is unavoidable overlap, then a deny group would be the solution.
