Students from University of North Dakota were also there. Caleb Dschaak, who says he and his colleagues are developing a bill that focuses on cyber security and data privacy protection. Jennifer Weber is the director of institutional research for the university system. She says privacy has become increasingly relevant, and everyone has questions.

“There's questions about who owns the data whose data is it can it be shared? How should it be shared and what kind of rights do these people have? What kind of rights do they have over their data,” said Weber.

Dschaak and other students want to make sure shared data is protected, not sold to other groups.
