The trick with RDP is to move the ports to something random, then to have whitelisted ip addresses that can access it or failing that something like ts_block - really neat ip address checker that blockholes an IP address after a set number of failed attempts.

Stuff like taking off the admin account shouldn't have to be spelt out... And finally... Its 2020..... 2008 r2 went end-of-support 5 years ago... 5 YEARS AGO.... Maybe its time for them to look at getting some proper investment in IT or at least let the PHB/bean counter that blocked the migration (for it usually is someone higher up) face the music for such negligence.
