As principal deputy CIO, Miller managed all IT operations for the agency, including cyber operations, business management and planning, operations and foreign operations.

Prior to joining the Foreign Service, Miller was an emergency dispatcher in California and is a U.S. Army Signal Corps veteran.

The State Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
