Live Free or Die Hard
Chuck Summer is a liaison agent of NSA for Department of Homeland Security who works with Jack Parry and FBI deputy director Miguel Bowman on the systematic attack on the entire computer infrastructure of America.
At the FBI mobile command center, Summer, along with Parry, arrived. He reveals that White House made a call to help about the systematic attack against America. They asked for some workspace for to their people. Bowman sarcastically says that they already got the space and says that he'll let them know if they are needed. Summer and Parry were present when the terrorists took control of the broadcast stations and we're horrified when the US Capitol was blown up, but found out that the explosion was a fake.
Later at night, Bowman requests to Molina to have Summer and Parry bring all of their agents and functioning hardware they got over to them. Then, New York police detective John McClane calls Bowman and sends a picture of the mastermind behind the systematic attack, which reveals to be former Department of Defense analyst Thomas Gabriel. Summer and Parry we're silently horrified by the identity of Gabriel, knowing what he's planning to do.
Afterwards, Summer came to Parry at his request. Parry tells him the alarms are going off in Woodlawn and suspects it was Gabriel. Bowman overheard them and demands to know what it is. Both Parry and Summer reluctantly reveal that Woodlawn is a secured facility underneath the Social Security Administration which contains back-up servers that stores financial data in case of total network attacks, like the one Gabriel orchestrated. Summer states that if Gabriel get into the systems, he can download the data and use it to siphon billions. When the angry Bowman asked how Gabriel knew about financial servers since he never knew the existence of it, Summer sighed heavily as Parry states that Gabriel designed the system during his DOD tenure, which angers Bowman even more for knowing all this.
