How was data breached at the Police Federation?

In 2019, the Police Federation of England and Wales (PFEW) experienced a serious data breach after the headquarters were hit with a ransomware attack. This was a serious breach that included the names, email addresses, NI numbers, ranks and serving forces of roughly 120,000 police officers at all levels up to chief inspector. Other affected information detailed:

  • The names, addresses, and email addresses of guests who attended the PFEW conference and used the hotel facilities in Leatherhead. Some of these individuals might have also had their financial details put at risk.
  • The names, addresses, NI numbers, and bank details of members who asked for assistance from PFEW for any investigation, complaint, or enquiry.

Can I make a data breach claim against the Police Federation?

If you are one of the 120,000 police officers or other people affected by this data breach you will be entitled to make a claim for compensation. You don’t have to have only suffered financial losses to receive compensation, you can also claim for emotional distress which was a key part of this breach. Being a police officer is a stressful job, officers don’t need the additional worry and anxiety of having their personal information compromised.

When cybercriminals steal personal data they are committing theft and when the PFEW pretty much allowed the hackers to steal the data with poor security measures, it is especially upsetting.

After the initial attack on its systems, PFEW suffered a multi-pronged, sustained hack. Early indications showed that this attack differed from the first and had a wider impact on the Federation network. PFEW confirmed in a tweet that it had been on the receiving end of a malware attack. It stated, “there is no evidence at this stage that any data was extracted from our systems, but this cannot be discounted”. Questions were then raised about why it had taken them nearly two weeks to notify the affected parties of the breach.

Frequently asked questionsQuestions we are frequently asked by our users

Why should I make a data breach claim against the Police Federation?

Starting a data breach claim against the Police Federation will not only allow you to access the compensation you deserve, but also hold the Federation to account for its actions. As a result, this will hopefully encourage them to take the required steps to improve their data security protocols and ensure that such a breach cannot occur again.

People have the right to expect that any personal data that they have shared with an organisation, like the Police Federation, is securely stored and handled. When data protection standards have fallen short, and in this case weak security measures lead to a serious ransomware attack, exposing the data of thousands of police officers on top of many more individuals, you can make a claim for compensation. If that information fell into the wrong hands it could be fatal for those whose details were involved and the thought of which would cause a great deal of distress and concern.

In line with current data regulations, you have a right to compensation for non-material damage when your personal data has been breached. This means that those who have been affected can get compensation for the frustration and anxiety they have endured as a result of the breach. Also, there is a lot of uncertainty and feelings of vulnerability as this was a ransomware attack so the criminals have complete control and could do anything with the data if the ransom is not paid, so victims would need to be extra vigilant in case of phishing attacks or other fraudulent activities.
