Not really. You cannot apply security schema based on component. We had this issue in our company. And it ended that users didn't see any issue that they didn't participated.

I may suggest only to create more smaller projects.

yes thats what i was doing - small projects - but they wanted all in one project for reporting purposes..

You could find/write a listener that spots changes on issues, looks at the components, and sets an issue security level automatically.

Problem I can see with that is that an issue can only have one security level, but multiple components, so you'll need to have some rules about which security level you choose.
