Compartmentalization (Separation of Privileges)

Similarly, compartmentalizing users, processes and data helps contain problems if they do occur. Compartmentalization is an important concept widely adopted in the information security realm. Imagine the same pool man scenario. Giving the pool man the keys to the house while you are away so he can get to the pool house, may not be a wise move. Granting him access only to the pool house limits the types of problems he could cause.
