what software / hardware are you using for the firewall? you can check the the firewall software to check it's log, or you can use 3rd party software, like (Firewall Analyzer)

Firewalls: Cisco ASA, Cisco IOS, Cisco FWSM, Cisco PIX, CheckPoint, Fortigate, Juniper Netscreen, Sonicwall

Just make a report out of the information you get from the firewalls/IDS'es. make like "statistics" and stuff. bosses like that kind of reports.
