        Information Rights Management (IRM) is an information protection technology built into the Microsoft 2007 Office system. IRM gives organizations and users more control over how information in Microsoft Office documents and email messages can be used by recipients. With IRM, the creator or sender of a document or message can specify who can open it and whether those allowed access can make changes to it, print, forward, or copy it, or perform other actions with the information it contains. This paper focuses on the benefits and limitations of IRM and best practices in planning, deploying, and managing IRM.
