In order to get rsync to have access to the hard drive in macOS Ventura, you need to add rsync and other programs to the Full Disk Access panel under Privacy & Security in System Settings.

First click on System Settings

Next locate Privacy & Security at the bottom of the same block as General in the left menu bar and click on it
Next, click on Full Disk Access
Then open a Finder window and navigate to the top-level ‘Macintosh HD’ and look for the usr directory, select it, then select bin. Finally, drag & drop the rsync command into the Full Disk Access window in true Apple style.
Finish adding all of the below commands and rsync will work
