Hi everyone! I work in Privacy and Trust at DigitalOcean and wanted to provide an update to this question.

We launched our Trust Platform earlier this year as a way to centralize our Privacy and Trust related information.

As part of the release, we have a dedicated security certifications page that is continually updated.
