I'd contact the chiefs of the company in order to assess
what actually happened. Define attack. If its an IP based
attack, would be difficult to prove unless it was ongoing
as spoofing could play a role. It could turn out to be
something as trivial as said company ending up with a
machine they own which was compromised and used as an
attack vector... I've seen it happen to a few companies.

Personally, I would seek out the CSO, Senior IT personnel,
and follow that route.
