A spokesperson for GCHQ explained on Friday that some of their most brilliant minds who have no problems breaking complex codes actually have difficulty in interpreting or even reading words. Dyslexic people can crack problems because of their disorder.
Studies have shown that people suffering from dyslexia “see” things which people without the disorder can’t see.
This army of code breakers helps Britain by playing a critical role in various cyber wars where criminals or terrorists attempt to gain access to sensitive information. GCHQ recently drew public attention world-wide after the American former technical contractor for the United States National Security Agency, Edward Snowden, told the world US spy agencies had access to data of British citizens.
