We are reviewing compliance against cis/sans top twenty cyber controls, and one of the controls is that of limiting access to script tools, which it sites an example of powershell and python. If users only have standard user rights (no local admin) what is the risk of them having powershell at their disposal on their assigned laptop/workstation?

And how from a systems admin / support perspective could you restrict access to such scripting tools to standard users? e.g. how can you hide/uninstall powershell for all?
