sudo is a tool for expressing and enforcing a site’s policies regarding superuser privilege.

If your sudo configuration expresses and enforces those policies the way you want it to, then the configuration is correct.  If it does not, then fix it.

sudo doesn’t tell you what your policies should be.

We can suggest policies to you, but not based only on the information you’ve just given us.  To properly advise you, we’d need to know your threat models, the risk assessments, and more.  In short, we’d have to become your system administrators.
