I filed my OPT EAD 3 months back and checked up my status by calling USCIS CRS. The response is my case is currently with an adjudicating office. I read on some website that sometimes the process may delay because of security check. So I'm wondering how this whole process works. If my case is with an officer, does it mean that they have completed the security check (if necessary)? Or, the requirement of the security check is issued after the adjudicating officer reviews the case?
I'm not sure if they wait to assign cases until there is a security check, but I doubt it. Most likely it is with an officer even before the security check is completed.

Does not necessarily mean any such thing. No need to speculate. Simply means your I-765 application is sitting on top (or in the middle or even at the bottom) of a pile of applications on a particular officer's desk, the one who has been assigned to review and "adjudicate" your I-765 application. As to when he/she will actually get to do that there is no telling. The only barometer you can go by is that all I-765 cases nationwide are currently taking 90-100 days to be adjudicated.
