Mark Zuckerberg is the face and soul of Meta and of all the services that this company offers to Internet users. With a central and fundamental role, it must be protected and safeguarded at all costs, whatever the threat that arises.
Aware of this, Meta commits many of its resources to ensuring the protection of Mark Zuckerberg. In 2021, and according to information revealed, the owner of the largest social network on the Internet spent 27 million dollars.
A fortune for the security of the CEO of Meta
The most recent information shared by Meta allowed a different view of certain areas of the company. One company statement to the US Securities and Exchange Commission showed that it is not cheap to guarantee the safety of Meta's CEO.
The figures presented refer to 2021 and show that Mark Zuckerberg cost Meta a real fortune. These are values that focus on his safety and travel, and which amounted to 27 million dollars.
Mark Zuckerberg's travels counted towards the value
It is not detailed on what elements all this money was spent on, but there is a lot of information available. First of all, it is known that this also included the entire family of the strong man from Meta, both at home and abroad.
On the other hand, it is also clear that this figure also includes the trips that Mark Zuckerberg was obliged to carry out in his duties. Once again, and under this heading, the figures presented are not detailed in any detail, but it is known that it reached 1.6 billion dollars.
In line with the values of past years
If this is a considerably high amount, it is in line with what has been spent in the past. In 2019, 23 million dollars were spent on the same function and in the following year that amount increased again, reaching 25 million dollars.
Although very high, this is a common value in this industry. Mark Zuckerberg isn't the only CEO to have these astronomical amounts spent on personal safety and travel. Still, and in light of other standards, we speak of a real fortune to keep a single person and his family safe.
