My main goal is to get in cyber security. I wanted get a cert in either CySA+ or CCNA Ops but don't know which one. Somebody told me that the CySA+ is mainly for government jobs and is taking CEH over. I want to eventually get a government job but I don't have a clearance, so my other option is a non government job. So, should I get a CySA+ or go with CCNA Cyber Ops? Thanks.
What should I get: CySA+ or CCNA Cyber Ops?
This should, I would say, depend on the job role you're trying to in and skill level.
The CCNA Cyber Ops is preparing to work entry level in a SecOps Center. This would be considered more associate level.
According to the https://certification.comptia.org/certifications/cybersecurity-analyst, the CySA+ is preparing for working in a security company related to penetration testing and monitoring. Their site indicates that this more of an intermediate skill beyond the knowledge of CompTIA Sec+.
If you do not have the knowledge level found in CompTIA Security+, you may want to start there before either of the two certifications that you've listed, then pursue the one according to skill set and desired job in cybersecurity you're seeking.
