EMP Protection of Data Centers and 
Critical Commercial Buildings
Seminar Abstract
For best results, the 1-day seminar assumes participants have already addressed elsewhere natural disasters of hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, volcanoes, and/or tsunamis, etc. This new disaster protection course is a blend of EMP protection for administrative plans & actions, and especially, technical how-to with ways and means plus options and rationales.

What's critically missing in this data center?
See below 
What's missing in present Data Centers ?

 Not EMP Protected = all is lost - data + lifestyle
 Generators become dysfunctioned  
 Terrorist can HPM dysfunction your operation & servers
 Parking lot vehicles are dysfunctioned
 No EMP Protected skeleton solar rooftops

 Take the above 1-day course & learn the fixes

Terrorist can dysfunction your Data Center  operation & servers
 via HPM (high power microwave)
While  EMP Protection of Data Centers needs to have its shielding and surge suppresion applied below 1 GHz, HPM (high power microwave) may be used to cause facility and data failures by a terrorist. For example, even a surplus WWII, X-Band (10 GHz), 6-ft dish radar housed in a plastic-covered cab in the back of  a small pick up truck, can create  the damage when parked 500 ft. away from the data center. This scenario is shown in the illustration below. Thus, it is concluded that if EMP protection is to be added, The frequency protection should be applicable up to 16 GHz or higher.
