Has Elon Musk security guards

What Bezos, Zuckerberg and Co. pay for their safety

The richest man in the world doesn't have the highest security costs - or at least it isn't publicly known.

"Forbes" reported that the amount that Amazon spends on Bezos security has not changed since 2012. And this despite the fact that the billionaire's fortune has risen to more than 100 billion euros. An Amazon spokesman said that Bezos was responsible for his own personal safety.

The Daily Beast discovered a city planning permit from Seattle, which showed that Amazon had applied for bulletproof panels to be installed in Bezos' office in November 2018. That was granted the following January. The conversion cost around 175,000 francs and can withstand multiple shots from a military assault rifle.

The private bills for Bezos' security measures are not publicly available. But his chief security officer said that Bezos had given him a blank check to start a private investigation.

After private messages from Jeff Bezos to former TV presenter Lauren Sanchez to the newspaper "The National Enquirer" leaked, Bezos instructed his security chief Gavin de Becker to find the source of the leak.

As reported in "The Daily Beast" in March of this year, de Becker said that Bezos had given him unlimited funds to investigate the matter. De Becker's investigations revealed that Saudi Arabia was behind the leak with “high certainty”. The reason for this is that Bezos belongs to the newspaper "The Washington Post", which reported in detail on the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi Arabian embassy.
