Fedora has updated their bits (Cygwin's version uses some of Fedora's packaging):

...or build it yourself (learn cygport and the associated stuffs to get it installed via setup-x86_64.exe, this is non-trivial depending on your skills (and time 😉)...):

$ uname -a
CYGWIN_NT-10.0 FOUREYES 3.1.4(0.340/5/3) 2020-02-19 08:49 x86_64 Cygwin

$ cygcheck -c openssl
Cygwin Package Information
Package              Version        Status
openssl              1.1.1f-1       OK

This also allows one to change OpenSSL to suit their specific needs (maybe you need/want FIPS?):
$ openssl version
OpenSSL 1.1.1f FIPS  31 Mar 2020
