Degree vs Certifications
While a certificate is cheaper than a degree in cybersecurity, it takes longer and costs more. While the degree offers a wide range of knowledge that can be applied in many industries, it has less hands-on skills.
You can demonstrate that you have the skill an employer is looking for by getting the right certification. There is also a legal requirement (see above).

How can I get hired as a Cybersecurity professional without a degree?
CompTIA Network+, CompTIA Security+, are the most essential certifications you will need if your new to cybersecurity. Here’s why: A little-known regulation by the government is DOD-8570. (Technically, it has been updated to DOD-8140, but that uses the old DOD-8570 chart). The document states that you need to have at least one certification if you are in a job that could expose you to sensitive data. CompTIA Security+ usually is the minimum certification required. This certification is requested by companies even if they will not work for the government. You should be able to get a job if you have these certifications.
