I'm looking to obtain a second certification this year. I have my CISA, but want to go towards the cyber security route. What certification would be a good entry/intermediate level and complement a CISA?

Start with the Security+, then once you have a few years in Cyber under your belt, get the CISSP.

Get Certified Get Ahead book by Darill Gibson is the Bible and professors messers videos. It’s not hard in comparison to other exams , it just covers a of a wide variety of topics which makes it a little difficult to remember everything

Depends on what you want to do in cyber. If you just want baseline knowledge, security+ is a good foot in the door. There’s also CISM which is pretty popular. Another one is CEH, which is more intermediate level and has more technical concepts around pen testing, vulnerability’s, port scanning, etc.
