So after the shooting incident in april at Facebook HQ in silicon valley, the company didn’t hesitate to take drastic measures. As we all know the social networking giants office is a 30-minute drive away from YouTube, and it swiftly redoubled its own defenses even spooking some employees in the process. Most people don’t notice them because they walk around in civilian clothing with concealed firearms in case of emergencies. Following the YouTube shooting, Facebook upped their numbers, in doing so unsettling some employees who subsequently noticed them.
Facebook’s chief global security officer Nick Lovrien said in an interview that the company immediately increased its “security posture” following the YouTube shooting.

“Not everybody was aware that we had those on campus, so there was a population that was concerned that we had armed off-duty officers,” “But I will say that the majority of people expressed they were much more comfortable having them, and in this role my job is really to weigh that risk versus anything else, and safety is the number one priority, and this was the right investment to be able to mitigate that.”

also has armed guards outside of his Bay Area residences, and executive protection officers in civilian clothes quietly keep watch over him while he works in the office and accompany him wherever he goes( well though. You can’t be the ceo of one of the biggest company in the world and yet still walk around like it nobody’s business).

Well that some of the challenges that comes with being a big tech company, just as a lot of people wann a see you succeed, another set of people are looking for ways to bring you down. It left for you to rise up to the challenge and tighten up your security. Facebook has to similarly prepare whenever it constructs a new facility: When it built its new Frank Gehry-designed headquarters in Menlo Park, the security threats it was forced to consider involved everything from the risk of earthquakes to the possibility of a plane from San Francisco International Airport falling out of the sky onto the campus, which would cause carnage.
