Working groups are still a thing, but they are tied to a specific
governance body (TC, UC, Board of Directors). SIGs are cross-community
working groups, beyond a single governance body. Project teams are a
form of TC-owned working group dedicated to the production of OpenStack

With security having so much operational ties, it feels like a SIG would
be the best match as it prevents artificial governance boundaries from
getting in the way of getting people more directly involved.
