Changing Security of XML Forms Packaged PDF

We have a calendar-based program with 52 separate weeks of data created as 52 separate pdf forms. From time to time they need to search all the weeks and creating a pdf package gives them the ability to do that. But I'm concerned that following a search they may accidentally leave that file open and when the office got busy begin updating the forms in the package. To prevent this I would like to secure the package so that they cannot do anything but search, view and print. However since I'm creating these packages once a week, I do not want to go through all 52 pdfs to change security. btw the solution can't be too time consuming or it won't be worth doing.

I thought up a workaround. I can burn the packaged files onto a CD which I can then write protect. That's not ideal but is a good solution under the circumstances. Wish there was a software solution too.
