I would say the simplest way is to zip the important contents into one zip file (using winzip) and password protect that
zip file. So if you want someone with authority to read it , they can copy the zip file to their hard drive , get the password from you and then be able to open that zip file and read it ..

or use PGP to password protect or in other words encrypt

This is an easier way to protect than using CD encryption software
