While the ISA firewall is quite secure right out of the box, there are plenty of things you can do to make it less secure. What you need to know, before you break the default high security of the ISA firewall is to know security best practices when dealing with the firewall. That way, you won't create rules or run software on the firewall that could lower the exceptional level of security the ISA firewall provides.
The best way to get up to speed on what you need to know to keep your ISA firewall secure is to read the ISA 2006 Security Guide. You can find it at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb794718.aspx
