Southwest Microwave, a provider of high-security outdoor electronic perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS), will be hosting a series of seminars throughout the U.S. and Canada this fall to highlight security best practices.

The 2013 Perimeter Defense Seminars will explore 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 will be staged from September to November in 15 cities across the U.S. and Canada.

“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,” said 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,” he added. “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 70,000 systems protecting critical infrastructure worldwide and over 40 years of perimeter detection experience, Southwest Microwave provides the toolkit for achieving these goals.”
