Question

Do i need to worry about security

Hi,

I recently came across digital ocean and I am really interested to move my website over, I always hosted my websites on shared server where i can use cpanel.

My Question is do i need to worry about security and install firewall or digitalocean takes care of all the security? I am asking about server security and not code security.
