No other scenes clearly show Nmap in use, but here's a wider shot that shows the screen that has Nmap and UMIT running on it.
What's going on is that details about the secret program the CIA team is part of, codenamed Blackbriar, have apparently been leaked to a British reporter named Simon Ross, who works for a newspaper called The Guardian. Simon Ross was sniped by an Blackbriar operative after meeting with Jason Bourne at Waterloo station in London, England. They got video of Bourne assisting Ross through London's extensive CCTV system, so they are trying to see if Bourne is the source of the leak.
In this scene, they've used Nmap and UMIT to scan interesting ports of the Guardian's mailserver, and probably have used some sort of exploit in Postfix to dump emails from the reporter's account.
Pam Landy is a CIA head who believes Bourne is not the source - after all she knows Bourne from the previous movie, and Noah Vosen is a Deputy Director at the CIA who is heading the Blackbriar project.
Here's the transcript for that scene...
CIA TECH Sir, I think we have something. We just hacked Ross's email account at the Guardian, and found roundtrip tickets to Turin, Italy. (0:33:15 - Camera close up on screen showing a dumped e-mail from the reporter's email account.) Yesterday, 0800 arrival, 1205 departure. PAM LANDY Well I think we can be pretty certain that Bourne is not your source then. NOAH VOSEN How? PAM LANDY Ross's call to his editor where he said he just met the source took place just after his Turin flight landing. He met his source in Turin. NOAH VOSEN So? PAM LANDY What, so ... what, Bourne met Ross in Turin for breakfast and then at noon the same day Bourne calls Ross to demand to meet at Waterloo? TOM CRONIN (Sarcastically) Maybe they were even on the same flight. NOAH VOSEN I want everything you've got. Cross check the secure cell phone usage of everyone with a CI clearance against all calls going in and out of Turin, Italy the morning Ross was there. (0:33:44 - Camera angle shows whole room view. Projector screen at left shows Nmap, UMIT, and some Bash terminals. Center screen shows Simon Ross's CIA dossier.) PAM LANDY The guy you're after is a CIA operative with clearance above top secret, he's committing treason by talking to Ross. You really think while doing that he's gonna use a cell phone that he knows we can track? CIA TECH 2 Zero results on the cross-check. TEAM LEADER So you got any better ideas? PAM LANDY Yeah, look at all the people whose cell phones were switched off the entire period Ross was in Turin. If your people are on their phones as much as mine the list should be pretty small.
