Hackers are a unit's field infowar specialists.
Infowar, short for Information War, has become a key component of the modern warfare environment both in terms of tactical and strategic approach. Nowadays, it seems nigh inconceivable for an operative team not no include at least one field infowar expert, commonly called Tactical Hackers. The function of a Tactical Hacker is to provide offensive and defensive data and communications capabilities in real time. Offensive tactical infowar is the application of a small-scale, focused, destructive force to enemy information systems, computers, and networks in order to disrupt their weapons systems, their command and control capabilities, and their most sophisticated pieces of technology. Defensive tactical infowar on the other hand is the protection of allied systems from hostile disruption, and has become one of the most critical aspects of military planning and a continuous headache for operational strategists from all military and security forces in the Human Sphere.
