There are chambers set up to test semiconductors for EMP.

IN fact a lot of CMOS devices will qualify. If I recall CMOS is more 
immune than NMOS or PMOS to such events.  Still the military in 
many key equiptment use what is called radiation harden 
semiconductors. One other method would be to enclose your Coco 
in a magnetic shielded box that would supply around 100 dB  of
