Default Before I Root

I understand that using a system as root is normally considered a security risk. I know that, for instance, if I run my computer as root, I can unintentionally allow an attacker admin access to it. Are there then security risks that might apply to gaining root in a phone? If I 'root' the phone, does that not cause the phone to boot with an unauthenticated root access? I just want to make sure that I am not exposing my android O/S to potential exploits before I do the procedure.
Any insight will be helpful.
Thanks,
Bert
