I’m thinking of setting up a full node… doing my part…

Some questions:

I'm a bit of a n00b with this kind of thing – I have a spare computer with 200gb drive space litterslly sitting there unplugged doing nothing.

If I were to run a node, would 200gb be enough space?

How much data (internet usage) does running a node use? I live in a country where internet is relatively slow and is metered (fkn Australia, some of the worst internet in the world!)

What security measures would I have to take to ensure that running the node is a) secure and b) not going to draw attention to/make my home network a potential target/risk?

I'm not a hardcore computer geek or anything, just a regular bitcoin user with a bit of time and a spare PC on my hands – I accept bitcoin for my business and I love the concept of bitcoin, just want to do my part in supporting the cause!

Thanks for your answers in advance!
