Also, in SPSS 13, under File . . ., you can mark a file as READ ONLY, in case that helps.

AFAIK, there is no password protection feature in SPSS.

You can place it on a windows share or NTFS directory and restrict write access to the people authorized? That way, everyone can read it and make local copies, but they cannot change the master file...
