From armed guards to high tech security systems at work, most of the billionaire CEOs have proper security measures in place. But Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is the costliest executive to protect.

Facebook spent $7.3 million on the security of one of the richest man in the world in 2017. Company increased the Zuckerberg’s family security allowance to $10million a year In February 2018.

This funding has led to some unprecedented security measures

Zuckerberg doesn’t have a separate office like other CEOs generally have; he has a regular desk like all other employees. But the desk features bullet-resistant windows and a panic button to initiate a lockdown.

No one can park directly beneath Zuckerberg’s desk because of the fear of car bombs. Zuckerberg doesn’t open any gifts or letters himself; a security team inspects them before they can reach him. Even a bar is security checked thoroughly before his arrival.

Now, it is rumored that his security staff has installed a secret ‘panic chute’ in his conference room at the company’s headquarters which he can use to flee the building in the case of an emergency.
