If you can make sure the script runs under taint mode (it isn't just for CGIs!), then you've taken a significant step towards making your script secure. Taint mode (-T on the command or '#!' line) isn't a magic bullet, though. It can stop you from making some subtle mistakes, like using unexamined user input in eval or system (not just system) calls. See perldoc perlsec for more.
