A message to our community from the Northside Planning Council:
At the end of June our websites, including the sites for the Northside Planning Council, Northside News, FEED Bakery Training Program, FEED (Food Enterprise & Economic Development), Madison Public Market's MarketReady Program, Healthy Food For All Dane County and WI Food Business Roadmap were compromised. Specifically, people who have visited our websites may have been redirected to spam websites. We’re fortunate that no sensitive information was affected and have been working to restore full functionality in the weeks since. Thank you to everyone who has reached out to us to let us know about the issue. It has been difficult to troubleshoot since the redirects to spam websites don’t happen every time someone visits a web page, only occasionally.
This has been such a good reminder to us of the importance of proactive cybersecurity. We’re taking steps to prevent this from happening in the future and, as we research and develop new policies, we will be glad to share best practices with our partners, so we can all stay safer in this environment.
While we’ve secured the websites, cleaning up and restoring each page will take some time. Please let us know if you experience any issues with the sites. You can reach us via messenger at any of our Facebook pages (tagged above). We are grateful for your feedback, patience and support. ... See MoreSee Less
The Northside Planning Council has been privileged to support and work with the entrepreneurs in the Madison Public Market's MarketReady Program as they prepare for the opportunities of the future Madison Public Market.
Thanks to Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway for recognizing MarketReady in this recent article from the Isthmus:
“'The real benefit to a program like this is the entrepreneurship it will foster, the employment it will provide, and the wealth growth it will create,' she says. 'There are a ton of people interested in the MarketReady program developed to help vendors prepare, and that is the most exciting part of all of this.'"
You can learn more about our program #MarketReady at marketreadymadison.org. Find us on Facebook and Instagram to get to know the participating small & start-up businesses. While the Public Market's projected opening date in 2021 might seem far off, you don't have to wait to support local entrepreneurs and enjoy local foods & crafts! ... See MoreSee Less
