Forbes has released countless articles on the problems that may come with having a high net worth, including threats like assault, kidnapping, blackmail, and burglary. As we have seen throughout the years these are not just empty threats, with the Kim Kardashian burglary in France we know that the fears of the rich and powerful are very serious.
The rise of big data and internet of things does help with this topic but not necessarily in a positive way. Addresses are easily found, pictures of entire family lines, floor plans of private compounds and every cell phone can be hacked. Having these capabilities makes high net worth individuals an easy target for international criminals looking to make their fortune the illegal way. Although it seems like we are living in a terrifying world where there are no safe zones, or nothing you can do to protect yourself, your family, and your capitol. This is not the case there are many options and steps that you can take to ensure your safety.
