Gabriel Vaughn is a high-tech intelligence operative enhanced with a super-computer microchip in his brain. With this implant, Gabriel is the first human ever to be connected directly into the globalized information grid. He can get into any of its data centers and access key intel files in the fight to protect the United States from its enemies. Lillian Strand, the director of the United States Cyber Command supports Gabriel and oversees the unit's missions. She assigns Secret Service agent Riley Neal to protect Gabriel from outside threats, as well as from his appetite for reckless, unpredictable behaviours and disregard for protocols. Meanwhile, Gabriel takes advantage of his chip to search for his wife who disappeared years ago after being sent by the C.I.A. to infiltrate and prevent a terrorist attack in Mumbai, India.
