You is both the singular and plural form of the pronoun.  The only correction needed is to change the period to a question mark.

 

Do you have any new or updated information to share with the DSC Quarterly group this Friday?

 

You are addressing the sentence to both Bob and Phil.  I'm guessing that you think that you sounds awkward because these guys aren't attached at the hip.  You probably don't care which one has the info, but are writing to both of them just in case.  You is still appropriate, but if you don't like how it sounds, I can think of two alternatives.

 

Do either of you have any new or updated information to share with the DSC Quarterly group this Friday?
