The other posts are absolutely right. You need to have the correct key in order to remove the cylinder.

However, don't go drilling anything until you try this trick first. See if you can pry the faceplate (the part with the key slot) off of the lock cylinder. Once the faceplate is out of the way, try to unscrew the switch retaining nut. If it comes off you are home free. You can even save the switch by taking it to a locksmith, who will be able to remove the cylinder.

You can also get the switch out by destroying the retaining nut, but the nut is more expensive and harder to find the the cylinder.

Those who choose an automatic transmission want transportation. Those who choose a manual transmission want to drive.
