Andrew Ceresney, Co-Director, Division of Enforcement, SEC

Andrew Ceresney, director of enforcement at the SEC, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive and explained the agency's priorities.

After a gunman opened fire at Canada's National War Memorial and Parliament, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said he wants to beef up security at federal buildings. But as Mark Goldstein, GAO's director of physical infrastructure issues, explained on the Federal Drive with Tom Temin, more security means a greater workload for the Federal Protective Service.
