Hækka (ˈhaihka) - Icelandic for raise or lift (something) up to a higher position.
Our team spent the last 6 years making the public cloud, namely AWS, compliant for healthcare data. Along the way, we learned the ins and outs of operating a modern, remote technology company in a highly regulated industry. We experienced the pain, first-hand, of having to 1) write and maintain policies and procedures for modern (cloud and SaaS) technology, 2) execute those policies and procedures day-to-day across our remote workforce, and 3) prove our compliance during audits and security assessments.
We came to realize that keeping promises to our customers was essential to doing business. We kept our promises by executing our policies and procedures. But, this was a continuous heavy-lift for dev, dev ops, QA, sales, ops, and HR.
At Haekka, we want to solve this pain. Our vision is for customers to hire Haekka to solve compliance in totality. Through integrations and proven workflows between modern tools like Slack, we will automate an entire compliance program without forcing employees to context switch from app-to-app. In the process, we will elevate trust in our customers.
