I don't think security is possible by hardwiring certain actions into an AI and any attempt to do so would only increase the possibility of it becoming insane. Security is hard enough to maintain when you only have to worry about criminals of average or more likely below average brain power, you can't outsmart somebody vastly more intelligent than you are. There are no guarantees but or best bet is to do the best we can to make an AI that is sane and then just hope it likes us, who knows it might work.
