Big tech companies spend big money to keep their executives safe. Wired looked into the cost and uncovered interesting figures.
Apple spent about $300,000 on Tim Cook’s personal security last year. Amazon and Oracle each spent about $1.6 million for Jeff Bezos and Larry Ellison. Alphabet spent less than a million to protect its top brass.
But Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg security detail costs $7.3 million a year, or about $20,000 a day. But that cost is going to be almost $1 million dollars a month this year.
Why so much? Cambridge Analytical, fake news, fake ads, accounts hacked, cover-ups and more.
Hey Mark, here’s an idea, treat people and their data right and you’ll save about $9.7 million dollars a year.
