With the new Catalina, we are being challenged yet again with Apple security crap ...
In this case, to assist the end user, I want a button that opens the "System Preferences" - "Security" panel.

This is how this can be done (uses unit "process"):

RunCommand('/usr/bin/open',['x-apple.systempreferences:com.apple.preference.security'],s); 

Now this wasn't enough for me, I wanted the "Privacy" tab open

RunCommand('/usr/bin/open',['x-apple.systempreferences:com.apple.preference.security?Privacy'],s);
