Rights Management Services (RMS) is an encryption technology that canbe used to protect individual files and emails. It is designed to work inconjunction with other security measures, such as O drive permissions.One of the benefits of RMS is that unlike O drive permissions which mustbe configured by ICT, any member of staff can apply RMS protection to adocument or email. Also, once a file is RMS protected even if that file ismoved or copied the protection remains in place.RMS is now available for all staff to use. It is intended to be used withhighly sensitive documents and where granular permissions and document expiry dates must be applied. However, it is important that RMS protection is applied only when necessary, as overuse of this technologycould result in legitimate access to documents being accidentally denied.The following applications support native RMS protection:
Protecting Microsoft Office documentsTo protect Microsoft Office documents open the file you want to protect, click “File” andon the “Info” tab. Select Restrict Access>Connect to Rights Managers Servers and gettemplates. Once the templates are downloaded click Protect Document > RestrictAccess. You can now restrict access to specific people, to University staff (editable) orUniversity staff view only.
Check “Restrict permission to this document”and enter the names of the people you want tohave “Read” and “Change” permission. You canenter their name or email address, or selectthem from the global email directory. You canalso grant particular permission to “Everyone”by clicking.
You can click “More Options” to grant additionalpermissions (such as allowing users to print)and to set an expiry date on the document.
When someone accesses a protected document for the first time they must beconnected to the University staff network in order to authenticate. If they are offsitethey will need to be using VPN. Once they have accessed the document once on a particular computer they will be able to access it repeatedly without needing to be connected to the staff network, as long as the “Require a connection to verify a user’s permission” checkbox isn’t ticked in “More Options”.Protecting emailsYou can apply RMS protection to emails to prevent recipients from forwarding or printing them. Note that this will only work with emails sent to internal recipients.To protect an email that you have just composed click File > Set Permissions. Then click“Do Not Forward”.
Outlook Web Access has full support for reading and composing RMS protected emails.We have not yet enabled RMS to work when using your University email account onmobile phones and tablets but this is planned for the future.
