How to globally disable the public checkbox

Since we now have a cloud based Bitbucket I'm concerned that someone accidently can make any repo public, so I do want to disable this feature for everybody in our team.

Besides that, just users with admin access will be able to access the Repository settings and make this change. 

Please, feel free to share any additional questions or concerns regarding this subject. 

Kind regards,
