Job prospects in SAP security

What do you see as the future of SAP security and career growth in it? I have a background in the financial industry, UNIX/Networking, some data warehousing and C/C++ programming and am trying to make a decision as to which SAP area to get into.
The technical path to security expertise is well traveled. However, SAP security implementation is technically quite straightforward and may not provide a challenge to a C++ programmer. While technical expertise is valuable in understanding how security is implemented, an even more important skill in implementing good security and controls is an understanding of functional business processes, reengineering, internal controls and segregation of duties. Perhaps building on your experience in the financial industry would be an effective route to a career in security.
