Mark Zuckerberg's security costs hit $20 million in 2018 after a disastrous year for Facebook, in which it became a lightning rod for the techlash.




By way of comparison, Amazon and Uber spent $1.6 million and $2 million respectively on protecting their CEOs, Jeff Bezos and Dara Khosrowshahi, last year.




Facebook said "negative sentiment regarding our company is directly associated with, and often transferred to" Zuckerberg.




It follows a Business Insider investigation, which revealed how Facebook's 6,000-person security army quietly protects Zuckerberg and the firm's 80,000 employees.

The cost of keeping Mark Zuckerberg safe got a whole lot more expensive after Facebook's year from hell.
In a Securities and Exchange Commission filing on Friday, the social network revealed its CEO's total compensation package for the 12 months ended 31 December 2018.
Despite only drawing a salary of $1, Zuckerberg's pay more than doubled to $22.6 million last year, up from $9.1 million in 2017. The main reason for this: Zuckerberg's security costs.
