This talk will present the work which BCNET has done to monitor and recognize DDoS attacks against the BCNET member networks. By using alert and traffic data from Sightline, we are able to characterize the attacks flagged by the information contained within DoS alerts. This talk will present how this core service helps members to detect and protect from malicious attacks. Information on how members can sign up for this core service will be presented.


Jamie Stockdale
Production Manager | UBC Sauder

Jamie Stockdale is the Production Manager, Academic Media Support, for the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia. He is variously involved in direct support of faculty where teaching and learning interface with technology. He is responsible for ensuring that technology aids, but is not the focus of, the classroom environment for the school’s undergrad, graduate, and professional programs. He is heavily involved in media production for the flipped classroom, and also for live event recordings and broadcasts. He has been involved in video creation for curriculum redesign projects for programs both on UBC campus and offsite, including a 6-course MOOC in EdX with 300 unique media objects and 500,000 total participants. More recently, during the COVID pandemic, Jamie has been instrumental in setting up and managing Sauder's 6 broadcast studios, which have been used to deliver online classes to students of the business school. In his spare time, Jamie plays football (with his feet), and races dragon boats competitively in the waters of Vancouver’s False Creek.
