I work in a classified environment. In particular, we're often faced
with the situation where a third party needs to sit next to us for some
period of time and aid us in development. However, we have other
ongoing projects that they aren't even allowed to know exist. Their
access is extremely restricted, and we take extraordinary measures to
prevent any accidental disclosure of classified information.

No need to make it easier though. Also, audit logs are reviewed every
week (and often more frequent than that, especially on our web server).
 Such action would be deemed over the top and possibly end up with your
clearance being revoked. Trying to circumvent the measures that we've
put in place is borderline criminal. Trust me, we take all of this
*very* seriously.
