all authorization to DB2 are controlled by GRANT command or by adding the user to sysadmin dedicated group
no default grant for users
dba role can have also access to data

Good DBAs are not formed in a week or a month. They are created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good DBAs.
