Super Team
One would not expect to have a single person trying to master all the dimensions of security (software, infrastructure, risk management, etc.).  It takes a team.  I suspect the roles and dimension of big data are still so new, it's easy to see how organization's are latching onto the notion of a data scientist. It's a convenient way to embody the disciplines. There may be a few supermen/superwomen out there.  But most likely, the organizations that will profit from data sciences will be those with a super team.

Re: So much to learn
We as a society tend to throw around the words "scientist" and "science" too liberally. Colleges award bachelor of science degrees in such non-scientific fields as management and philosophy. Urban planners fancy themselves as social scientists. And don't get me started on political science--double-speak is far more of an art.
