Have a single administrator for each site collection

This will enhance your security practices. Try to assign as few users as possible as administrators of your collections. Use the “Site users” tool to visualize the administrators.

Use groups to manage users

When used properly, SharePoint’s flexibility and security model allows administrators to define different user permissions, creating a sustainable security model. This will make it easier to adjust permissions as you just have to edit the group and not individual people. Using groups allows you to easily add and remove people from the group without worrying about having to set specific permission levels for individual users.

Avoid using document or item level permissions

Setting single item permissions is dangerous because it is hard to see an overview of such permissions, making it impossible to do proper security maintenance.
