Have a look at information barriers and evaluate if this fulfills your needs:

We have looked at Information barriers in disabling student chat and still having access to chat with teachers. This did not work as it is impossible to block chat within the same segments. This works only if you are from different segments. For example, would be perfect in a work environment if you are blocking chat between two different departments.

Also the system doesn't allow you to allow create new information policies if you are using the same segments that already has a information policy linked to it.
