How to Restrict Authors to a Specific Category or Media in WordPress
If you have a multi-author site where each author works on a separate topic, you can limit their access to a particular category or media.

Limiting Author Access to Categories in WordPress
If you are running a multi-author blog or website where several authors are trying to push out content, it is only natural to assign certain categories to certain authors. This helps you, as an administrator or editor, to better manage the website and the authors to focus their efforts on that specific category. If you are in need of limiting authors to post only in a few assigned categories in WordPress, here is how to set that up.
Restrict Authors to Specific Categories in WordPress, the Easy Way!
WordPress comes with a great user-management system. Another way to limit a user’s capabilities is by utilizing this system to add or remove user roles. This system enables each user to have certain capabilities based on the roles they are assigned: Super Admin, Administrator, Editor, Author, Contributor and Subscriber.
In WordPress, each user role has permission levels that allows them to perform certain tasks on the website. As the administrator, you have the ability to perform all actions on your WordPress site. You can give additional capabilities to an existing user role, or take away their capability to perform certain action on the website. Check out the full user role table here.
A quick way to “lock down” and make sure e.g. only Administrators can see all content is to create a new Access Level for Administrators with a negated condition group containing “404 Page”. This means that normal users only can see the 404 Page.
