TEMPE, AZ - Southwest Microwave, a leading global provider of high-security outdoor electronic perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS), today announced the launch of its 2013 PERIMETER DEFENSE SEMINARS series. These sessions explore best practices for mitigating risk of unauthorized site access, vandalism, theft or destruction of critical infrastructure, and cover such topics as:
• Principles of intrusion detection for today’s leading perimeter security technologies.
• System design and configuration best practices for specific vertical market environments.
• Critical detection performance measures for developing an optimal perimeter defense.
• Total cost of perimeter detection system ownership as a key decision-making strategy.
The seminars, running from May to November, 2013 in 24 cities across the US and Canada, target facility end-user personnel, consultants, architects, engineers and systems integrators in the Utilities, Industrial, Transportation and Government/Military sectors involved in the design, specification, procurement, installation and maintenance of perimeter security systems.
"PERIMETER DEFENSE workshops support those involved with intrusion detection in identifying critical considerations for an effective PIDS solution, relative to application-specific concerns and threats facing today's security-sensitive sectors," explained Bob Kirkaldie, Southwest Microwave's Director of Sales.
"We ask attendees to consider their current perimeter security strategy and its effectiveness in defending against attack, sabotage or harm to human life," Kirkaldie elaborated. "Today's technologically advanced solutions provide robust measures to detect intrusions and prevent nuisance alarms. System elements - sensors, cameras, command and control applications - can network seamlessly and cost effectively, if done right. With more than 50,000 systems protecting critical infrastructure worldwide and over 40 years of perimeter detection experience, Southwest Microwave provides the toolkit for achieving these goals."
