Competence is not a significant factor in job security according to my experience. We've had layoffs every 6-9 months for the last several years. In that time my team has gone from 17 down to 5, although now it's back up to 6. The most common factor in the layoffs was which product you were on, followed by productivity, followed by age/salary.

Note that competence and productivity are not equivalent.
