This achievement should come naturally as you play the game. I picked it up when I got to Shanghai in the Alice pods. As you play the game, hack devices anytime you get the chance. A good spot to pick up several is in the police station inside all of the offices, many of which can be reached by sneaking through the air ducts. Another is the main workstation area on the first level. You can hack every employee's computer, which nets you at least 10. I did this with a level 3 hack ability, so you don't need anything higher than that.

As for the actual hacking process, make sure you take a look at what you're facing before starting the first capture. If your first node is pretty high difficulty, maybe you need to use a nuke to take it down. And don't be afraid to use your stop and nukes whenever you feel the need. You will constantly pick up more, especially if you go after the bonuses in each hack. Once you've been detected or are likely going to be detected, start fortifying all of your nodes while you're waiting for the next target to be available for capturing. If you can build up fortified nodes quickly, you will slow down the network from locating you. My hacking upgrades only consisted of the lvl 3 ability and lvl 1 fortify. I do not yet have any analyze or stealth bonuses. Most of the hacking process is just speed and some luck. If you get spotted on the first 40% chance of a long hack, you'll probably have to disconnect and retry no matter how many bonuses you have. Enjoy
