Bill Gates being the third richest man in the world comes with its own set of problems. One of these is that pretty much any normal person is going to be incredibly jealous and that could be dangerous. Bill Gates learned this the hard way when he took a cream pie to the face in Brussels in 1998 and since then his security measures have skyrocketed security at the Microsoft Office in Redmond was seriously beefed up with windows so thick it was bombed brew and any employees wishing to speak with gates required an invitation and an escort to his heavily guarded private floor.

The whole house is equipped with special sensors which interact with guests we’re given a unique pin as they enter to control lighting and temperature this doubles up as a sneaky security measure though as the floors also have sensors which log the individual weight of each guest and match it with their pen this means that anyone entering without a registered pen isn’t going to take more than a few steps.
Pope Francis is one of the world’s most important religious figures but not everyone is a diehard fan that means some serious protection is needed. The Pope has a dedicated and highly trained security service at its disposal if you’ve ever noticed these guys who look like they’re on their way to a live-action role-playing event then you’ll know who I’m talking about. these colorful warriors are known as the Swiss Guard who is one of the oldest military units still under operation having been established in 1506 under pope Julius the 3rd. they’re also one of the smallest armies with just 110 to 125 X Swiss soldiers serving at any one-time recruits must be unmarried Catholic men 19 to 30 years of age and at least 5 foot 8 tall with the basic military.
You might consider Mark Zuckerberg as one of the more humble billionaires out there. but the reality is that the cost of protecting the Facebook tycoon far exceeds that of any other bigwig CEO in 2018 alone it cost Facebook a whopping 22 million just to keep Zuckerberg and his family safe which was a massive increase from figures of 7.3 million in 2017 and just 2.6 million in 2013. This is probably a result of Facebook getting caught up in various recent scandals involving data protection which are often associated directly with Zuckerberg himself. Reports state that the Facebook Board of Directors now provides Zuckerberg with a ten million dollar security grant per year on top of the measures already in place which covers extra expenses like equipment and residential improvements.
Even before he was elected for president in the United States he was just a business billionaire.

Protecting Trump and his family before taking office in 2016 cost New York City a million dollars per day and he’s insane figures haven’t decreased since Trump is estimated to cost taxpayers more than three times the Obama’s and security measures for an equivalent period in 2018 his presidential visit to the UK cost 18 million and required an extra 10,000 police officers to be deployed on trips like this his complex parade of armored vehicles motorcycles helicopters and trucks each with a specific role to play in overseeing his safety is a real sight to behold.
