The Need for Emergency Access

On occasion, organizations need to grant temporary access to the production environment so a developer, or another role, can troubleshoot a problem. All emergency access, also known as Firefighter access, should have an expiration date and logged for auditing purposes.

Unfortunately, providing Firefighter access can be a tedious process: Having a member of the security team review the request, grant the temporary access, and follow up to remove access once the project is complete, along with providing a well-documented audit trail, is cumbersome.
