Cybersecurity is one of the defining challenges of the digital age.By 2022, another study estimates, there will be 1.8 million vacant cybersecurity jobs.The problem is that neurologically exceptional people tend to be disadvantaged by the traditional interview process, which relies heavily on good verbal communication skills.The United Kingdom's National Autistic Society reports that just 16 percent of autistic adults in Britain have full-time paid employment, and only 32 percent have any kind of paid work, compared to 47 percent for disabled people and 80 percent for nondisabled people. This approach has already been applied with great success by the likes of Microsoft, Amazon and SAP in the areas of coding and software development and by the U.K.'s GCHQ intelligence and security organization, one of the country's biggest employers of autistic people.Of course, an updated approach to interviewing candidates will not work for everyone.
