For most officers their warrant number is a 6 digit number which does not include a p or their pay prefix.

You must be (or have been before retirement) a subscribing member of the Police Federation.

Once we have confirmed your warrant number, you will be able to access all areas of the site

Operation Fortress – Data Breach - How to Register

Operation Fortress Update

February 2024

As you are aware, the Metropolitan Police Federation (MPF) have instructed Penningtons Manches Cooper LLP (PMC) to investigate if there is a viable claim for compensation arising from the cyber-attack on Digital ID in the first instance. Please note that the target organisation’s own investigations into the cyber-attack are ongoing and so progress is likely to be slow at this early stage. However, the MPF will continue to keep you informed about the progress of the claim as and when there are any material developments.

In the week following the publication of the MPF London Beat magazine on the 5th March you should be contacted by email (your personal email held by the MPF) with a link to a survey which will allow the MPF to register you as a potential claimant and capture the information relevant to this claim.

If you believe that you have been impacted by the breach but have not received a link to the survey, please email with your full name, warrant number and personal email address (this is to avoid the risk of prejudicing your potential claim in the event that PMC subsequently advise that there is a viable claim against the Metropolitan Police Service in respect of its handling of your personal data).

If their investigations lead PMC to conclude that there is a viable claim for compensation, then the MPF will facilitate your onboarding with PMC at that stage. In the meantime, please note that you will not have a client relationship with PMC at this stage and you should therefore not contact them directly. If any member does contact PMC directly, they will be liable for any costs incurred.

Finally, I would like to thank our membership for their patience on this matter. This is a very complex potential claim, and it has taken longer than originally anticipated to ensure we capture members data in the correct and a safe way.
