What things should be considered when granting access to individuals to add/remove members to g-mail groups for a corporate g-mail environment.

This has come up within my organization in relation to group e-mails that receive confidential information. The group e-mail for HR is a great example. We would not want just anyone to have privileges to add/remove people from something like HR's group e-mail.

    This is specific to each company. Each company should decide this on their own, based on some justification, and implement it. This should be a bit different in all companies, depending on their size, age, location, and other factors. – DarkCygnus Aug 19 at 21:33
  • On another question, is your company having problems with many group emails? And thus why you are thinking of restricting it? Please, enhance so we can try to edit this answer into something on-topic (as it's currently not) – DarkCygnus Aug 19 at 21:35
  • Hey Doctor, I see your edit, but I think that the question remains the same at it's core. It is still company-specific the way it is phrased... perhaps you could try to phrase it other way to make in on-topic (for example: What things should I consider when deciding who should be responsible for adding/removing people from group emails?) – DarkCygnus Aug 19 at 21:40
  • Thanks for the feedback @DarkCygnus. I have made another edit to hopefully make the question more on-topic. – THE DOCTOR Aug 19 at 21:53

What things should be considered when granting access to individuals to add/remove members to g-mail groups for a corporate g-mail environment.

You should consider who should have the authority to add members to specific groups. Only you and your company can answer that. Should an HR generalist have the ability to add members to an HR group that deals with private, confidential, sensitive, or personally identifying information? Probably not. Who should have the ability? We can't answer that for you.

The group e-mail for HR is a great example. We would not want just anyone to have privileges to add/remove people from something like HR's group e-mail.

Right. Then don't give just anyone the ability. We can't tell you who should or shouldn't have the ability. This is specific to you and your company.
