Speaking & Presentations


HIPAA Keynote Speaker

Thirty years is a long time to do anything, but that’s how long Donna Grindle has been helping those in the healthcare profession with their IT, security, and privacy needs. In addition to running Kardon, Donna is a frequent – and highly entertaining – speaker at conferences, forums, organization meetings, webinars and more. She has a unique ability to take typically dry topics like HIPAA and cybersecurity and make them not only interesting, but fun! She does this every week on her podcast, Help Me With HIPAA, and would love to show your group how cybersecurity can be compelling too.
