Well, that's right, but you must set also the next options:
This could be more secure. Never allow remote users to gain
root access. Instead, put a user in the wheel group to allow
this user to run su(1), also, you can setup a user with uid =
0, on another group to maintain the root user a little bit more
Also, the logging options are should be these settings.
