There is plenty of security plugins just to mention Better wp security. So if you will take care, install security plugins and properly configure your server it would be hard for hacker to break into.

Welcome to the forums
Is Wordpress the best option for your content and business needs? There are plenty more content systems available that don't suffer as many security issues...

WordPress is now the most used CMS out there - hence hack rates are higher. Its more secure than a lot of standalone options. Its slightly bulky but if your a dev and now how to use dependencies like grunt i'd suggest using http://roots.io/starter-theme/ its very good.

To get a good idea of many basic WordPress core features like adding dynamic content you can also download an even more basic theme that has no styling, but has many wordpress features. You can review the code and see how they achieve dynamic menus, displaying posts etc. http://underscores.me/

What kind of business site??? If you are looking for E-commerce site, Open cart is the best choice for security reasons. And the WordPress is best if you have just content management sites like classifieds, article directory, etc.,
