i would say the 2 biggest threats are sql injection where a hacker can obtain access to your databases and cause mayhem .
the other is a spam attach where a neer do well can hijack your email sending form and send spam mail using your mail facilities. yahoogle these and you will find a lot of info

would they be considered more of an issue for members sites though? I am only making a simple 8 page site at the moment

the script you use, named in another of your post,looks ok.
1 thing though it is using a fixed anti spam number. this will help i used this for a couple of years on a site . using an image of a number. it was passed eventually , it is better to use a dynamic Captcha.
