ISPConfig does not use up any resources when you are not doing something. Webmin or virtualmin use resources.
Every software that you install on a server add risks. But there are no known problems with ispconfig and you can also add a .htaccess protection on the interface as additional secirity protection if you want.
I will definitely look at ISPconfig again - I have it installed on a debian VM just haven't had time to play with it.
Is ISPC built in/dependent on php? At some point I want to port all of my sites over to Ruby/Rails and want to remove PHP altogether.
