IMO,security is important but doing a research in this area is not so easy as everybody suggesting.Doing research in security means what? Cryptography or network security or IP Security or Web security or Firewall? The aobve mentioned areas are very diverse.There is difference between cryptographer,security engineer and network engineer.

I thought math is part and parcel of any Computer Science related research. Every basic data structure involves some inherent level of Math.
With respect to Security you need a knack for bit-wise operations if you want to create more robust encryption algorithms etc.
