Even though I really cannot recommend doing this, since it will affect the security of your Mac, but SIP can be disabled as such:

Disabled SIP:

  1. Reboot you make in Recovery Mode
  2. Open Terminal and execute: 
    csrutil disable
  3. Restart your Mac normal and SIP is disabled.

You will now have the root of your disk read/write enabled for sudo.

Enabled SIP:

  1. Reboot you make in Recovery Mode
  2. Open Terminal and execute: 
    csrutil enable
  3. Restart your Mac normal and SIP is disabled.

SIP will now be enabled again.

This is an old post but I would like to attach a newer method for M1 Mackbook as @hans doesn't include in his post.

Disable System Integrity Protection for M1 Mac

Step 1: Reboot the Mac device into Recovery Mode by pressing Power button untill you see the Option Screen shows up. Hit on the Continue Button.

Step 2: Move to Utilities and Run the Terminal App.

Step 3: Now, type the csrutil disable in Terminal Window, and then press Return to disable the SIP.

Note: You should enter Y to agree and then the admin password in M1 Mac if typing this command.
