For each OU that is defined (folder in folder icon) excluding the Domain Controllers OU:

Right-click the OU and select "Properties".

Select the "Security" tab.

If the permissions on the OU are not at least as restrictive as those below, this is a finding.

The permissions shown are at the summary level. More detailed permissions can be viewed by selecting the "Advanced" button, the desired Permission entry, and the "Edit" or "View" button.

Except where noted otherwise, the special permissions may include a wide range of permissions and properties and are acceptable for this requirement.
