How to Keep Sensitive Information from Prying Co-Workers

Dear Office Mom,

Recently, I was promoted from an Admin Assistant in one department to HR Specialist where I work. As excited as I am about this promotion I have run into a major dilemma. My former supervisor and I became friends, and she quickly took on the role of my Office Mom for the year I worked with her, supporting me and helping me develop professionally. Now that I’m in HR she has tried to get other employees' salary and bonus information. I have refused to give her any information making things very uncomfortable for us.

Any advice is greatly appreciated. - Anna
