Use the principle of least privilege


The principle of least privilege must be applied when creating new objects and roles, setting access permissions, and accessing other systems.


Systems should have a set of roles with different levels of privilege to access resources. Users and applications should always have a role with the minimum level of privilege required to execute their functions. A violation of this may become a new vulnerability or leverage for causing a greater impact when exploiting other vulnerabilities.
