Facebook’s spending on securing CEO Mark Zuckerberg doubled in 2018 compared to a year earlier. The company lost 22.6 million dollars last year to secure the CEO and his family.
Almost $ 20 million of that amount was spent on direct security of Zuckerberg. A year earlier that was 9 million dollars. The cost of using private planes, which Facebook considers to be part of its security, amounted to $ 2.6 million last year.
Facebook and Zuckerberg were placed under an extra magnifying glass in 2018 due to the privacy scandal surrounding Cambridge Analytica. As a result, Zuckerberg had to account for things in Washington and Brussels.
The fixed salary of Zuckerberg in recent years is 1 dollar. The assets of the Facebook founder are mainly in the shares of the company. In 2018, Zuckerberg sold $ 5.4 billion in Facebook shares.
