These days, the true meaning of the holidays is often lost underneath the constant commercialization that envelops the holiday season.

On Monday, Oct. 27, a video produced by WLU-TV 14 was featured on the Tech Crowd segment of CNBC’s technology news destination, Squawk Alley.

The video profiled a project called SecureSelfies. SecureSelfies is a new brand of protection technology for smartphones and other devices, developed by West Virginia-based start-up Confirmix, a company that develops enterprise and consumer identity authentication products. The CBNC Squawk Alley Tech Crowd segment pitted SecureSelfies against another up-and-coming brand of security technology called Cyber Ghost for the title of Tech Crowd leader of the week. CNBC announced on Friday, Oct. 31 that SecureSelfies won, with 68.22% of the vote from the online poll.
