To determine who has critical authorizations in your system, run standard sap report RSUSR005. (Note: 136856 should be applied to ensure accurate results.) This is a great audit report which will tell you what access users have and highlghts in red or yellow anything that might be an issue.

Here is an example:

User: TEST

Administration: Release background jobs
Administration: Start background jobs with each user
Administration: Network, processes, update task administration...
Administration: Logical operating system commands
Administration: Operations on secured spool requests
Administration: Print on all printers allowed
