Social news community site Reddit announced on Monday that it has hired Allison Miller as Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) and VP of Trust. 

Miller joins Reddit from Bank of America where she most recently served as SVP Technology Strategy & Design, and had been overseeing technology design and engineering delivery for the bank’s information security organization. She previously held technical and leadership roles at Google, Electronic Arts, Tagged/MeetMe, PayPal/eBay, and Visa. 

According to a blog post announcing Miller’s hire, she will be tasked expanding trust & safety operations and data security, and redesigning Reddit’s trust frameworks and transparency efforts. 

Miller has already started in the role and reports directly to Reddit CTO Chris Slowe. 

She has a B.S. in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania and a Master of Business Administration from the University of California at Berkeley.  

Reddit has been operating for more than 16 years, and announced a $250 million Series E funding round earlier this month.

The company says more than 50 million users visit the site daily.
