Founding Calamity

To adequately fill that gap, Daniel spent more than two years establishing Calamity Monitoring and Australia’s highest-rated electronic security monitoring facility, the Centre for Advanced Security Technology and Leadership Excellence (CASTLE).

Today, Calamity Monitoring is responsible for protecting $2 billion worth of assets and tens of thousands of individuals throughout Australia.

Having been formally commended by the NSW Commissioner of Police for his industry involvement, Daniel continues to provide ongoing consultancy advice to various government and private sector agencies.
