Real data is
|“||data from a production system, vendor, or public records, or any other dataset which otherwise contains operational data.||”|
"For example, a dataset that is a ten-year old backup of an existing system and contains data about real individuals, matters, or cases, would be real data. A set of public records that was purchased from a vendor for use in testing would also be real data."
