The section I'm working in runs a facility for sensitive research data
(https://www.uio.no/english/services/it/research/sensitive-data/).  Our
users use R (along with other analysis software).  We don't consider R
safe or unsafe, but have designed the services so that it should not be
possible (or at least very difficult) for sensitive information to leak
out of the network.

I would say that your best bet is to expect all analysis software to
have security holes or be compromised, and design your setup/network
around that assumption.
