    The area you'd like to edit is not directly exposed via the Group Policy cmdlets (https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee461027.aspx) as far as I know.

    As alternative you could backup the GPO with the Backup-GPO cmdlet, modify the .inf file for the file system permissions and import the modified backup again via Import-GPO again.

    However, you need to ask yourself if a group policy modification really needs to be automated.
