If I was using this in something that would be read by laypeople, I think I
would probably use a parethetical note in the first instance, i.e., "the
unvalidated (has not been validateed) data..." Or define it in a glossary
or list of terms.

I know industry readers would probably roll their eyes, but I'd prefer that
to having the wrong person (for example, a juror in a liabillity case)
confusing "unvalidated" with "invalidated."
