- Welcome to Norton Internet Security Essential Training. I'm Nancy Muir. In this course, I'll teach you about all the types of threats that are out there and exactly what role Norton Internet Security plays in protecting you. You'll learn about making settings to customize how Norton protects your computer. Because malware often slows your computer down, you can also use Norton to view important information about how well your computer's performing. I'll also explain why it's important to update virus definitions and perform scans of your computer on a regular basis.
Other portions of this course focus on how to protect your home network using Norton Internet Security tools. And how to protect yourself when you're moving around online. Norton can help you avoid risks while using your browser, emailing or messaging. In the final section of this course, I talk about making Norton Internet Security part of an overall online security plan that includes modifying your own online behavior to stay safer. Finally, I review help and support options for Norton Internet Security.
Now it's time to get going so you can start to make yourself and your family safer from online security risks right away.
