There is actually a BMR + Readme file where you can find the instructions to
implement better security on your BPCS files (this involves changing some
programs to run under *OWNER authority, as well as removing the SSA Group
profile from BPCS users profiles). This allows them access to the files only
when using BPCS programs, and not outside of BPCS. You will need to
determine a group of  'power users' who can have access to alter files or
potentially read files (depending upon what level of security you wish to
implement) when outside of BPCS (ie, via Query, SQL, DBU etc.).

Please check into BMR 51582, plus the follow on BMR to restrict access to
the command line from inside BPCS: BMR 57230.

You can also download the install instructions for V8 or V81 BPCS, and check
out the appendix section where this way of securing files in BPCS is also
discussed (these releases were delivered with programs compiled with User
Profile *OWNER, and prior releases require the BMR to update the KRSO
secured source programs).
