This is a good review of what we know to be true in most cases, yet for some reason, a few windows updates reduce the security level. We can't prove it other than we set things to FIPS and TLS 1.2 and somehow they drop back down to compatibility level and TLS 1.0.
 
We are investigating. Until further notice, review this:

Set TLS and encryption level using registry

 

How-to:

\HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-Tcp\SecurityLayer

 

 

To change the encryption level, navigate to the following registry key:

\HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-Tcp\MinEncryptionLevel

 

 
 
more to come...
