I will hopefully be building my new system in the next couple of months, and plan to start putting gaming content on Youtube, and then a little later possibly Twitch. We've all seen streamers get DDoSed and even had SWAT raids carried out, so my question is what is the best way to protect against this sort of thing? Obviously ensuring I never reveal my address or sensitive personal info is important, and keeping certain social media private. Other than that all I can think of is running a VPN, ensuring I have different passwords on every account, and hoping for the best. I do use 2 factor authentication where possible anyway so I'm not worried about that. I may or may not use a webcam to show my face while playing games, I haven't decided on that yet.
If you're a streamer or Youtuber, what security measures have you taken, or what do you recommend?
