The correct answer is 2.

A technical control is any security mechanism implemented with computer hardware or software. The principle of least privilege is implemented though software by setting authorization  of users on objects so that subjects can only perform the tasks necessary for job responsibilities. Business continuity planning and background checks are administrative controls, and perimeter breach detection is a physical control.
