    If you already have a Bachelor's my opinion is that the CCNA Cyber Ops is the better of those two choices.
    A+, Network+, CCNA, LFCS,
    Security+, eJPT, CySA+, PenTest+,
    Cisco CyberOps, GCIH, VHL,
    In progress: OSCP

    On a forum called techexams, I think you know what the majority vote will be. :)

    Since you have a Bachelor's already, I would suggest getting many certifications including Cyber Ops. Once you have some experience in the field, and some base knowledge, perhaps pursue a Master's.

    Two bachelors (or even a bachelor + associate) in related fields is probably not the best use of your time and money.

    What part of cyber do you want to get into? If it's something hands-on then go the cert route. If it's A&A or management, go the CISSP/Masters route.

    More hands on. I don't like manage people. I not the manage type.
