Following a data breach at Document Firm Elevate, Snap employee data was removed ...

According to a document from Reuters, an Ephemeral messaging app had employee data exposed by a breach at a third-party document analysis firm.

According to a September13 letter to a former employee, Snap said an unauthorized person had access to some of Elevate''s computer systems in March 2022. According to a complaint, the employee''s name, address, employment history, and compensation information might have been among the affected files.

According to Snap''s website, Snap was unable to terminate its relationship with Elevate, which also provides legal services.

A Snap spokesperson said a confidential outside vendor encountered a data breach that "exposed personal information of some of our current and former team members," adding that no Snapchat users were affected.

Snap said it had informed the affected people and would not use the vendor for similar services in the future.

Elevate''s spokesperson has declined to comment.
