basically my company has cisco umbrella and someone mistakenly connected to the wi-fi and accessed an inappropriate website that got flagged up. Can this be traced back to that person?

No, not with cisco umbrella. You need a firewall network device which registeres IP with MAC address to trace back

do you think the company would have something like this?
Customer: replied 13 days ago.
I think this person used a MacBook or a phone. She isn’t sure

Possibly, suggest to your computer to look at the config and logs in the firewall device in the network.

what would you suggest for this person to do so it won’t get traced back to her?

Are we on the side of the company to track them or the employee who deosn't want to get tracked?

either way, once they check the logs, they can track to an IP and mac address of the device, they wont recessarily know the name, its be a unique number. If this person wants to stay anonymous, just dont connect that phone/mac back to that same network in the future
