My suspicion.

It's tough to do fully depending on many different kinds of "stuff" you support, and the results will be eye watering for most that do it.

Historically "access control" was about card readers and PIN keypads but today that should be part of the software landscape.

We've all heard of apps (the NHS seems quite notorious for this) that require Administrator privileges to run and it's time more "need to know was applied."

No doubt SOP for many Reg reading admins but I thinks there's a few who it might still have it on the ToDo list instead of actually doing.
