The story goes like this:
I am currently interning at one technology company.
I am probably going to intern at a security consultancy company.
By reading information about the security consultancy, I've figured out that they seemed to have dealt with current (tech) company on a topic that could be described as (quite) sensitive. This was from reading materials that the security consultancy made public.
- The company name have been shortened, but is enough to make me notice by chance and am 85% sure I'm correct. This slight degree of disclosure seems intentional. I'm not sure about the motive for this.
- I'm fairly certain they have contact (it is inferred rather than implied).
- Knowledge that I have acquired after signing an NDA with my current employer (technology company) lets me piece the details together. No NDA with security consultancy yet.
- My work is not classified (albeit a little sensitive) and neither are the released documents. I'd probably guess this knowledge would rank between confidential and secret in government domain.
Do I have an (moral/ethical) obligation to reveal to my current employer that I (probably) know stuff that I shouldn't know between them and the company I might intern with?
(I like my current company and wouldn't like to them to figure this out later and take it badly from some reason. I think they are on good terms, but still.)
