Access is not designed to provide record-level access rights but if you are using SQL Server and other client/server back-end databases there are various options for user access rights.

Though you can secure the Access database by password protecting the database by opening the database in Exclusive mode by choosing Open Exclusive in the Open dialog box and choose security from the Tools menu and then select Set Database Password.

where as you can also accomplish user level security on each object in Access but again not at record level. Please follow this link to see how to manage user level security in Access database. Hope this will help.
