About Us

Danie Liebenberg has been providing independent security risk consulting and corporate investigation services to clients in South Africa and the rest of the continent since 2009.

He is supported by experienced investigators, a statistician, a criminologist and an electronic / electrical engineer as needed on projects.

Danie entered the private security industry in 1993 after leaving the South African Police where he had worked as an investigations officer.

He initially gained an understanding of residential security whilst involved with alarm monitoring and armed response operations. Danie soon recognised the need to become a security technology expert, and within a few years he was designing and overseeing the installation of security systems for residential, commercial, industrial and corporate clients.

Danie later also entered the guarding and off-site surveillance monitoring business, thereby rounding off his knowledge of conventional security. By the mid 2000’s Danie understood that conventional security services; products and approaches frequently prove inadequate to protect clients or solve their problems.

As a result he became increasingly involved in the development of pioneering services and technologies. His quest to provide more effective security eventually led Danie to become an independent security consultant in January 2009.

Danie is known for his out-of-the-box thinking and ability to accurately diagnose and solve complex security problems. His extensive risk management experience and knowledge of security technology allows him to expertly guide clients in their quest for optimal security.

As an investigator Danie has a reputation for having great intuition and getting to the bottom of things quickly. He has successfully investigated a variety of white and blue collar cases.

Danie has authored various articles on security risk management, is a popular speaker at industry events, and has hosted a range of workshops on security risk management. He is based in Alberton, East of Johannesburg in South Africa.

Liebenberg & Associates can assist clients anywhere in the world, but being based in South Africa, the majority of projects are in South Africa and other countries on the continent.

Why Us

Businesses, organisations and communities are under increasing pressure to respond with deeper insight and agility to the efforts of intelligent and organised criminals who are intent on uncovering and exploiting weaknesses in their security. Having access to ingenious security practitioners is essential for people who are tasked with the protection of lives, assets, operations and information.

Danie Liebenberg has been described as one of the most inspired independent professionals in the security industry. His grasp of the nature; extent and impact of security risks in South Africa and the rest of the African continent, plus his insightful perspectives on its’ mitigation, as well as his ability to lead security projects and conduct discreet and thorough investigations, makes him a valued resource to clients.

Danie gained his experience working with clients in various industries – manufacturers, retailers, wholesalers, residential estates, mines, banks, corporations, farms, airports, schools, universities, churches, sport stadiums, art galleries, exhibition venues, property managers & developers and more.
