In order to commemorate the day, a Privacy focussed Wallpaper & Posters have been created which depict the Privacy landscape and imperatives towards Privacy. The wallpaper depicts the steadfast approach of a Privacy Champion; inspiring others to crossover the abyss of privacy violations, using the bridge of privacy principles.
