The car lost contact with the resistor pellet in the key while you were driving, probably due to loose or dirty connections. It takes a full 60 seconds of loss-of-contact before the light will come on while driving, so maybe the key was slightly out of position or something.
If it can't get a good connection while you're trying to start the car, though, that will trigger the VATS, the starter won't crank at all, and you'll be in the penalty box with the Security light on solid for three minutes until the system resets. You might want to make sure the resistor contacts on your key are nice and clean, or use the other key if you have two, or get a new one, before the problem starts occurring more often. (You don't _have_ to go to the dealer for replacement resistor-pellet keys; Ace Hardware, among other places, has the necessary tester and key blanks.)
