Editing Permissions by Groups

I am used to being able to set permissions according to groups such as read/write, or read only.  I can't seem to find any permissions set up that way.  Here is my problem.  I have a map with several point data layers which have associated data for each point.  I want everyone to be able to see the data (or representative symbols) of the data on the map, but I only want members of the editor group to be able to change the data.  So far, I can either have only the editor group to read write or I can allow everyone...definately unhandy.  Does anyone have a method of creating realistic edit permissions based on group membership?
