Windows server equivalent of chmod 755

    The instructions for many PHP scripts and whatever give tips for server security, but the tips assume a linux server with Apache. I'm having a little difficulty translating over such instructions for a Windows server running IIS. For example, it's recommended that all directories that allow user uploads of images or whatever be set to chmod 755 (instead of 777). How would I do the equivalent on Windows? I know in the Windows folder properties you can set read and write permissions but it's not all that straightforward and I think actually it just works quite different. Maybe the equivalent security aim can/should be accomplished with a web.config file in such directories?
