MSP430FR5962: How to protect the content of the FRAM?

Part Number: MSP430FR5962

Hi, all experts,

I wanted to protect the FRAM section for that I have created a file named low_level_init.c in that file I have wrote a few lines of codes

#include <msp430.h>

extern unsigned char SYSNMIflag;// = 0;
unsigned int *ptr = 0;
unsigned int Data =0;

int __low_level_init(void)
    WDTCTL = WDTPW | WDTHOLD;               // Stop WDT

    // Configure GPIO
    P1DIR |= BIT0;                          // Configure P1.0 for LED

    // Disable the GPIO power-on default high-impedance mode to activate
    // previously configured port settings
    PM5CTL0 &= ~LOCKLPM5;

    // Configure MPU
    MPUCTL0 = MPUPW;                        // Write PWD to access MPU registers 
    MPUSEGB1 = 0x0400;                      // B1 = 0x4000; B2 = 0x5FFF
    MPUSEGB2 = 0x0440;                      // Borders are assigned to segments

    //  Segment 1 - Execute, Read
    //  Segment 2 - Execute, Read
    //  Segment 3 - Execute, Read
              MPUSEG2RE | MPUSEG2XE |
              MPUSEG3RE | MPUSEG3XE |
    MPUCTL0 = MPUPW | MPUENA | MPUSEGIE;    // Enable MPU protection
                                            // MPU registers locked until BOR
      /*Data = 0x88;
    // Cause an MPU violation by writing to segment 2
      ptr = (unsigned int  *)0x4000;
     *ptr = Data;*/
    while(SYSNMIflag)                       // Has violation occurred due to Seg2
        P1OUT ^= BIT0;                      // Toggle LED
        __delay_cycles(100000);             // Delay to see toggle
        MPUCTL0 = MPUPW;
        SYSNMIflag = 0;
        PMMIFG |= SVSHIFG; 
  return 1;

// System NMI vector
#if defined(__TI_COMPILER_VERSION__) || defined(__IAR_SYSTEMS_ICC__)
#pragma vector = SYSNMI_VECTOR
__interrupt void SYSNMI_ISR(void)
#elif defined(__GNUC__)
void __attribute__ ((interrupt(SYSNMI_VECTOR))) SYSNMI_ISR (void)
#error Compiler not supported!

    switch (__even_in_range(SYSSNIV, SYSSNIV__CBDIFG))
        case SYSSNIV__NONE: break;
        case SYSSNIV__UBDIFG: break;
        case SYSSNIV__MPUSEGPIFG: break;
        case SYSSNIV__MPUSEGIIFG: break;
        case SYSSNIV__MPUSEG1IFG: break;
        case SYSSNIV__MPUSEG2IFG:
            MPUCTL1 &= ~MPUSEG2IFG;         // Clear violation interrupt flag
            SYSNMIflag = 1;                 // Set flag
        case SYSSNIV__MPUSEG3IFG: break;
        case SYSSNIV__VMAIFG: break;
        case SYSSNIV__JMBINIFG: break;
        case SYSSNIV__JMBOUTIFG: break;
        case SYSSNIV__CBDIFG: break;
        default: break;

but I can see that in memory location 0x4800 there are FF 3F FF 3F..... and so on?

1) How do I protect my FRAM section?

2) How to remove FF 3F? I think this is IPE but I have not enabled that.

Can anyone please clarify that ASAP, its urgent..
