Well, security in this context was referring to anti-counterfeiting measures.

But that doesn't explain why, if you are going to go through a currency redesign for anti-counterfeiting reasons, would you need to necessarily feature the same person on the bill. No real difference putting Tubman on the redesigned bill (or anyone else for that matter) than putting a redesigned Jackson back on it.

One comment on the WaPo article (forgot to link it, sorry) was a suggestion to cycle through many different notable American persons and/or things on an ongoing basis. If each of the 6 major denominations (sorry $2 bill aficionados) is going to be revamped every 10 years then by staggering releases you could feature a new design on some denomination every couple years thus honoring many different people/things/ideas/institutions.
