You have to first define what permissions are required for each login/user/group. Then remove any unnecessary permissions.

My approach usually is to grant no permissions to anyone, and then add permissions only as needed. Most end-user logins/groups would only have public role at the server level and access to only the databases they need. In those databases, they would be granted access (usually execute permissions) to the stored procedures they need. You can create roles and grant them membership in those roles to manage the permissions for a group of users.
