10 things you can do to protect your Office 2010 files
« on: 15. September 2010., 18:24:05 »


These days, it’s easier than ever to work collaboratively — but it’s also more likely that you’ll run into malicious code or that the wrong people could access your files. See how Office 2010 has tightened security via features such as Protected View and File Block.

Your documents may not include trade secrets (or maybe they do!), but it’s still important to know how to take simple precautions to ensure that only the information you mean to share gets shared. Office 2010 brought a few useful changes to the way the software secures your work. Here are 10 ways you can put those features to good use when you begin to share your creations.

Note: This article is also available as a PDF download.
1: Get to know Protected View

The big security story in Office 2010 is the way in which Office intercepts files it perceives as threats. Now when Office notices you’re trying to open a file type that is not commonly used (you can control this through your Option settings) or a file from a possibly unsafe location, your application will display a warning in the message bar at the top of the application window. The file is temporarily placed in a sandbox, where it cannot affect any of your other files or programs — just in case. If you recognize the file or know the owner, you can click Enable Editing to tell the program everything’s okay. If you are suspicious and want to close the file, you can do so without worrying that you’ve infected anything on your system.
