Meet Suzanne Borg, Head of IT and Information Security. As a key member of our Malta-based team for over nine years, Suzanne believes that opportunities to develop professionally, achieve recognition for hard work, and pursue a healthy lifestyle are just a few of the many reasons Ixaris is a great place to build a career.
Meet Suzanne Borg. Suzanne joined our Malta-based team nine years ago as a Systems Administrator in our IT Services department and was quickly promoted to Systems Engineer in 2014, and Head of IT in 2015. In 2020, Suzanne took on further responsibility, becoming our Head of IT and Information Security. In this capacity, Suzanne defines our information technology, communications and information security strategy, while ensuring our systems, infrastructure and stored data comply with organisational policies.
As a fintech company, Ixaris is PCI-DSS compliant, so Suzanne and her security team are also responsible for leading PCI audits and ensuring compliance throughout different functions across our organisation. As Suzanne explains, “Working in the IT department at Ixaris also gives me exposure to a lot of innovative tools and technologies, including cloud-based solutions and avant-garde infrastructure.”
As a key team leader at Ixaris, throughout her career, Suzanne has felt well supported to develop and grow in her roles. As part of Ixaris’ professional development programme, Suzanne has taken every opportunity provided to attend technical courses as well as leadership training on communication, team building and negotiation. And when she’s not adding to her skillset, Suzanne enjoys another perk of working at Ixaris: our fitness allowance! “I love the fitness allowance as it incentives me to stay fit and healthy by attending fitness classes and purchasing sports equipment.”
When asked to describe Ixaris in just three words, Suzanne chose growth, perseverance, and family. “During my time working at Ixaris, I have met a lot of people who I now consider friends. The people and atmosphere at Ixaris are great. Everybody is energetic and passionate about their work. We help each other, share knowledge and work together to achieve the same goal: business success.”
“Ixaris is a perfect workplace to build a successful career where hard work is recognised and rewarded. This is invaluable to me! Through ups and downs, with persistence and motivation, I am proud of what we have achieved throughout the years and look forward to our new challenges ahead.”
