Hey, WordPress core itself is really secure. -> Due to Poor coded Plugins and themes make it Vulnerable to get attacked. -> If you didn't update your plugins or themes regularly,you will get hacked or slow down your site performance because old plugins & themes have bugs or need to be patch to get secure.

If you use a lot of plugins, they might have security breaches that might get exploited. However, Wordpress have an automated bot who checks plugins in official directory for lack of data validations and other vulnerabilities.
