With the proliferation of spy ware, key log trackers etc on all platforms for phones, tablets and PCs. It is almost a given that any piece of hardware you have like this should have some form of protection.
One to look at is AVG Free from the Android Market. One thing you don't want to do is leave your WiFi and or BlueTooth on all the time. They should be on only when you are using them. People are putting malware on phones through these two access points and you only have to get close to the perpetrator for them to be able to do it.
They are in and out before you know it and without AV you will never know that your phone has been buggered.

Lookout is another one to look at if you want one. I currently don't use one.
