I'm a big fan of the heavy Kryptonite chains through the frame and one wheel, and I guess I'd use a U-lock through the frame and second wheel. Take the seat inside with you- you probably have a quick-release seatpost lever on that bike, right? Check the seat tube for 'presents' once in a while.
I'd also try to leave the bike as close to the building as possible, in line-of sight to the interior, if that works.
About the security guard, just getting to the point where you're polite and say 'hey' to him every day is big, and if he can see your parking spot from his station, he might shout at a thief for you. $$$ to him might get him fired, but I suppose that kind of situation could be different building to building.
Good luck on the commute and parking- that bike should do really well for you.
