How secure is to jailbreak iPhone 4

We have come upon a series of goodies that the only way to have it is to jail-brake our iPhone.

We have iPhone 4 with the latest version update installed.  Of about 6 iPhone, 2 are used by key personnel which consists of sensitive data.

We would like to know how secure is Jail-breaking an iPhone?  I mean, if we jail-brake it, can there be a hidden software just overseeing everything being done on the phone?  These type securities concerne is what we we would like have some light shed on.

Please advice how secure is this proces of jail-breaking an iPhone.

Great info...  couple of questions:

    - the link found within aarontomosky link, says that it supports upto iPhone4: 4.3 through 4.3.3.  
      I have 4.3.5. (8L1).  The link i refer to is:
      http://www.zdnet.com/blog/hardware/jailbreakmecom-back-online-easy-ios-jailbreaking-for-all/13546)

    - both EE mentions ssh password and Ssh server, should this be something to look into?

    - When you mention 'Google will be your best frend in finding good repo sources', what
      exactly do you mean?
