Apple spends nearly $700,000/year on CEO Tim Cook's security, according to a disclosure from the company's Schedule 14A filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission.

Patently Apple spotted the following paragraph in the report:

"This amount represents: (i) the Company's contributions to Mr. Cook's account under its 401(k) plan in the amount of $15,600; (ii) Company-paid term life insurance premiums in the amount of $2,520; (iii) vacation cash-out in the amount of $56,923; and (iv) security expenses in the amount of $699,133."

Business Insider notes that $700k is actually low compared to other CEOs. For example, a 2014 Equilar report found that Amazon spent $1.6 million keeping CEO Jeff Bezos safe and Oracle spent $1.5 million on Larry Ellison's security.
