Securitying

derivation; verb
act of providing security
 
At Rice, many events have students acting as security. One student turned security into a new verb by adding -ing at the end. Adding -ing to the end of a noun seems to be a common way to describe what a person is doing in less words, so this person followed that trend. People knew what they meant since they know about acting as security.
Etymology : from root word security, with affix -ing
