How to apply Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations extensible data security based on the current user

Writing on his blog, Alex Meyer stated that he's written about extensible data security (XDS) in Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations in the past. However, he often gets questions from users who want to apply XDS based on the current user. The use case is something along the lines of:
