By looking into profile since you are working on security P_ADM_SEC_70 is much suitable to you.
C_TADM51_70 is more for administrators (basis consultants). If you are really familiar with basis then only you should go to this.
Otherwise, please go with P_ADM_SEC_70. Note this is not an easy exam. This tests number of security concepts, not just roles and authorisations, it also covers GRC concepts. You should be thorough and familiar with all the chapters mentioned in the curricula. Please also note that you do not have partial credit for this. Therefore, you should get all questions correct in order to get the full marks.
hope this helps you.
See the following thread and comments relating to professional certification.
It is not compulsory to pass your Associate level, but definitely 2 years experience will not sufficient to pass this examination
If you see it is covering number of areas like SSO, Security Infrastructure, SOA, GRC Suite, SAP UME Administration, Cryptography and Encryption etc. It is not just roles and authorisation related areas. I am sure you would not even touched these areas in your 2 years of experience. Even people having 10 years experience in SAP Security Domain will find this examination very difficult. Moreover, partial credit has been removed. You cannot take lottery / chance in answering the questions. If you get all questions correct, then only you will get full marks. That means the exam has become more and more difficult. This is a technical examination, therefore, your conceptual knowledge on these topics must be so clear, otherwise, you would find this examination very difficult.
Please assess yourself twice before registering the examination.
