They MUST be air-gapped - however the execs often demand network connection as when things are going well they can make a bit more profit by having faster response to changes - then they lose all that profit (and more) when things like this happen.

Having the control networks connected to the internet is like making more profit on ships by not having enough lifeboats (as on the Titanic).
