Look at ISO27001 and CISSP certification. Control access will require you to correctly split personnel, and there are some topics for 3rd parties (how to get them in the network, guests management, logs, and so on), not to mention that this will imply an access to the directory.

Subject: customer user accounts and internal user accounts on same domain

Hi, I'm trying to dissuade management from allowing user accounts to be created on the same domain as our company users for what I feel are obvious reasons, but when pressed for specific issues I'm at a bit of a loss. I cited reasons such as;
A clear demarc between customer accounts and our own accounts
Not giving any unnecessary rights due to inheritance, but rather having to apply the appropriate permissions rather than remove permissions to attain the desired result

They want to extend a service we offer to our internal employees to a partner. I suggested creating an extranet and using accounts from a separate domain rather than our own, but there is additional overhead imposed by such as design.duh.but I'm hoping to throw out an established standard or something to help my argument.

Thank you,
