How to protect your PowerPoint 2010 presentation

– Mark as Final: Make the document read-only

When a presentation is marked as final, typing, editing commands, and proofing marks are disabled or turned off and the presentation becomes read-only. The Mark as Final command helps you communicate that you are sharing a completed version of a presentation. It also helps prevent reviewers or readers from making inadvertent changes to the presentation.

– Encrypt with Password: Set a password for the document

When you select Encrypt with Password, the Encrypt Document dialog appears. In the Password box, type a password. Important: Microsoft cannot retrieve lost or forgotten passwords, so keep a list of your passwords and corresponding file names in a safe place.

– Restrict Permission by People: Install Window Rights Management to restrict permissions

Use a Windows Live ID or a Microsoft Windows account to restrict permissions. You can apply permissions via a template that is used by your organization, or you can add permissions by clicking Restrict Access.

– Add a Digital Signature: Add a visible or invisible digital signature

Digital signatures authenticate digital information such as documents, e-mail messages, and macros by using computer cryptography. Digital signatures are created by typing a signature or by using an image of a signature to establish authenticity, integrity, and non-repudiation. See the link at the end of this topic to learn more about digital signatures.
