Abstract : This study will assess the ability of PMs to manage cyber security risks on ground vehicles, review current Cyber Security policy and determine if awareness of cyber risks has increased since Boyds study (Boyd, 2008). Innovations in autonomous vehicle systems in the commercial truck industries will migrate into Army tactical wheeled vehicles as the Army moves increasingly into autonomous tactical vehicles. The study will identify how current military cyber policy impact cyber incidents (Rosenzweig D. I., 2014) (Rosenzweig P. , 2012) Army PMs were surveyed and they perceive an increased risk using a globalized contractor and some lack the resources to implement the cyber policies. The paper recommends to the Army establish an Autonomy Consortium, introduce cyber physical systems to DoDI 8500.01, and prioritize cyber requirements within the PPBE process.
