    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);
