As far as internet safety is concerned, dynamic is no safer than static. Being behind a router does improve protection because most routers have a hardware firewall built in, but it doesn't offer 100% protection from hackers. You still need to install a good third-party software firewall, preferrably configured to alert you to all incoming & outgoing traffic. Installing a good firewall is more important than debating the merits of a static or dynamic IP address if you're concerned about keeping hackers out.
