About Us

Recognising the power of aggregated  talent, Danie Liebenberg set out in 2009 to identify other security practitioners across the globe who could add value to his efforts as an independent consultant and investigator.

The  associates were  selected  for their  specific skillsets and perspectives on security risk mitigation and / or investigation. 

The  result is a team with great  depth of experience and know-how, able to deliver  success in  every  project.

Born and raised in South Africa, Danie  entered the private security industry in 1993 after leaving the South African Police.

During his career he  gained insight into  the  challenges specific to different industries and environments… among his clients are  bankers, mining houses, retailers, manufacturers, warehousing & logistic  operations, automotive businesses, exhibition venues, sport and recreation facilities, residential estates, aviation operators, health care institutions, agriculturists,  property managers and churches  to mention some.   

Danie credits his way of looking at clients’ security challenges and breaches  as the main reason  for his success. He believes that effective security risk management  and successful investigations is the result of how one looks  at things, which will naturally affect the course of action that follows. Says Danie: “I try to see what nobody else is seeing, and to think what nobody is thinking”. 

Danie is supported by Elio Zannoni in Africa, Quinton Kruger in the Middle East, Steve Chart in the United Kingdom and Massimo Dall’Armi in Europe.

Danie has authored various articles on security risk management; is a popular  speaker at security conferences  and has hosted a range  of workshops on security risk mitigation. He  is based in Johannesburg, South Africa, and is registered with the Private Security Industry Regulatory Authority in South Africa (PSIRA No. 148029).
