Malcolm Harkins: “Impossible is Not a Declaration. It’s a Dare.”

Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. Malcolm Harkins is willing to take that dare.

Cylance Chief Security and Trust Officer Malcolm Harkins sat down with Matt Stephenson recently to discuss what drives him to continue to push the security industry to do better. Malcolm looks to the words of The Greatest, Muhammad Ali, to sum up the mindset security officers need to have when they are assessing risk issues.

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.” ~Muhammad Ali
