Jim Anderson, Network Administrator

Kwantlen Polytechnic University

Jim has been with KPU's IT department since 1992 and has had a variety of responsibilities over that time, mostly concentrated around server and network administration in the earlier part of his career.  Over the course of the last 10+ years, his focus has been more concentrated on firewalls, security, and network architecture, re-designing KPU's infrastructure during the last network upgrade to incorporate firewalls at the network core.  Since KPU re-joined BCNET in 2013, Jim has been participating in the BCNET Security Working Group, and is working on additional architectural changes to further improve KPU's network security posture and to improve resiliency.
