I have recently joined a new job. My new boss along with my old boss planned to file a bid for a project with an industry partner. That is a collaboration between my old boss and new boss was about to happen. I established link between my new boss and old boss. The meetings were going fine, but recently, my old boss told us that he got invitation from another industry partner to file bid for the same project and he (due to some administrative reasons) would like to go with the another consortium.
Well, now my new boss requested me to confidentially find the industry partner of the new consortium. So I contacted my old boss (I have very good terms with my old boss). He said the information is confidential, nonetheless, he shared the info with me and told me to not disclose it.
So now I am in a fix. I have two options.
Option-A: Shall I tell my new boss the information which I got from my old boss.
Option-B: Or I told my new boss that old boss told me its a confidential information and he is not able to share it.
