Jeh Johnson, Secretary of Homeland Security, has called for more security on federal buildings across the country. This call for increased measures is in response to a rise in public calls by terrorist groups for attacks worldwide. After the two incidents in Canada in the last week, the measures appear prudent. Specific actions being taken to improve the security of these buildings will vary according to location, and no information about what measures are being undertaken have been released. It was emphasized that these actions are being undertaken solely in response to the increase in calls for attacks and not to any specific threat that has been discovered.
